Extending Table in Oak

Last week I delivered an extending table made in solid European Oak. Instead of  using an off-the-shelf table mechanism, I built my own one out of wood. It caused a few sleepless nights and no small amount of  head scratching but I am really pleased with results. I will be putting it on the web site in a few days. In the meantime,  here is an image of the table opened up ready for the leaf to be put in.

Welcombe beach after the storm

After Saturday night’s storm we went for a walk with friends in Welcombe. The storm had created a huge amount of foam on the beach so I went down and took a few shots. The wind was creating waves in the foam and then this happened.

Black Clarity Shelves

I posted these off yesterday, a set of oak  Clarity shelves with a black finish. I think they turned out quite well.

Interiors 2014

We will be exhibiting at Interiors 2014 as part of a new area of the show called ‘Designer Makers’.  Come and visit us on stand BP39 in hall 1.

‘ Designer Makers are a group of British craftsmen who design and make contemporary bespoke furniture to commission.

The membership consists of a large body of excellent designer-makers of furniture from all over the UK, including the top names in the field.

To some they’re regarded as a national treasure and it’s an absolute pleasure for us to welcome them to INTERIORS UK.

This is your opportunity to speak to the experts who can make your furniture design ideas reality! ‘

model : making is an exhibition which looks at the increasing use of new technologies by both craftsmen and architectural model makers. Devised to celebrate the London Design Festival, CAA will collaborate with architects Allies and Morrison to present ‘digital’ sketches, early prototypes and finished work, offering the viewer a unique insight into the early stages of the development of an idea.

model : making will explore how the use of new technologies is influencing and changing the aesthetic demands of various creative disciplines.

model : making will include work by CAA members Vicki Ambery-Smith, Neil Bottle, Kane Cali, Ptolemy Mann, Naomi Mcintosh, Christian O’Reilly and guests Kathryn Hinton and Rachel Hopkins as well as the Allies and Morrison model making workshop.
