Latest bespoke projects

I can’t believe I’ve not updated this since June last year! I’ve been lucky enough to work on a variety of bespoke projects over the last eight months…

These include bespoke indoor and outdoor work, along with some finer joinery and an interesting deck or two.

Let’s start indoors shall we; I’ve made a storage cupboard that sits under some of my shelves and also ties in with the banquette seating that I’ve previously made.

 

My little sister got married in December and I couldn’t resist making them a cheese board for their cheese cake.

I was commissioned to design and make a built in oak storage unit and log store, this was great fun and a massive learning curve! Installing in any house can be hard work, but this certainly pushed me. I’m happy to say that the clients loved it as do I.

I was also commissioned recently to make an indoor solid oak coffee table. This has just been delivered to its new home and the clients were thrilled with their new piece of furniture.

The end of last summer, I managed to finish my first outdoor kitchen space which included a BBQ and worktop with some storage underneath. I really enjoyed making this along with laying the locally sourced limestone for the base.

I worked on a large deck and outdoor kitchen space with Matthew Ellett, a friend and landscaper last summer that looked amazing when finished and I’d definitely love to work on more projects like this in the future.

My most recent job was another deck, using scaffold boards and counter sinking the stainless fixings and then plugging the holes with oak pellets. The deck was cut in around a curved stone wall and I’m really pleased with the outcome, as were the clients. They asked if this was a labour of love and I guess it is!

So it’s been quite a busy few months and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of projects that I’ve been able to work on.

I’m looking forward to the weather improving and to the next chapter of this journey!

New oak products now available

Over the past month or so I’ve managed to get a number of new oak products finished and up on the website. Moving away from the smaller homeware products and more into the furniture and outdoor ideas that I’ve always imagined Oak House to make.
I designed 2 solid oak planters (quite a while ago) which are now planted up and looking rather splendid – I like to try to design products that look a little different to similar items that are available.


I also finished this chunky English oak coffee table, I’m really happy with how this looks and the warmth of the grain of the table top. It was finished with multiple coats of danish oil and 3 coats of finishing wax – it’s the first time I’ve combined the 2 finishes and I’m extremely pleased with how it looks now.

Lastly, I’ve finally had the time to finish and install these oak and leather shelves. I’ve had lots of lovely feedback on many of my products but these really seem to of struck a cord with many people and it’s been lovely to receive such good feedback on a product you’ve designed and made.

You can find info on all of the above products on the website. Everything is made to order so I can make to different sizes if required – just get in touch!
Next up: I have a couple of bespoke projects about to start which I’m really looking forward to…you can find out more and see my progress by following along in the usual places; find and follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
