Good Morning, today I thought I would talk a little bit about wood joints, in particular the basic but common joints used in a quality piece of handmade furniture and also to give you “the potential customer” a bit of knowledge when it comes to designing and ordering your bespoke piece.
The Rhum Runners were in town this evening. Great show of Jazz and Folk.
Just finished a batch of Bespoke English Skirting Board for a customer who would like a nice traditional looking English skirting board. I think that it looks rather smart. I’ll be posting some pictures of the fitted boards soon.
So here is a picture of some handmade shutters which I’m making out of Sipo. Sipo is an African hard wood which is from the same family as Mahogany but is very weather resistant and has anti fungal properties making it a great choice for exterior applications like shutters, windows, doors and even garden furniture such as Adirondack chairs. Here is a link to the my shutters page which contains photos of the complete fitted shutters.
3D Dovetailed kitchen drawers and my signature which goes on all my pieces using the Seene iPhone App
I’ve been making some Dovetailed Kitchen Drawers today and thought I’d share how the Japanese Dozuki worked it’s magic on these pieces of Cherry and Beech.
Prototype Adirondack Chair is coming along, just tgought I’d share a quick update of the arms coming to life.
Started to make a Prototype Adirondack chair as I am planning to sell them on my website. The first prototype is made out of some old pine boards I have lying around the shop. Stay tuned for progress!
So a while back I thought about getting an iron for veneering and was debating on whether to get an expensive one or a cheap one. I was out last week shopping when I came accross this iron for 14.99€.
It works a treat and even heats up within a minute. I tested it on some Ash drawer fronts which had a heavy curved surface with some titebond II and it gave a rather impressive result.
In my opinion I would recommend a cheap supermarket special over any expensive alternative.
Almost There, Old London Table almost ready for delivery, just got to fit the old top which is the London link when delivered

Vienne HDR that I took while down by the river for the Festival De Confolens.
Started on the legs of a bar table this afternoon. The top is an old gate from London and the legs are tapered. I like to call it the “Old London Table”.
