Do you have an idea for an item of furniture but not sure where to start? At Makers we can help you every step of the way from initial concept to personal delivery.
I hope you like this short time-lapse film of us putting together a table top. Two minutes doesn’t really do justice to the actual 30 minutes of sheer physical effort that goes in to putting each of our table tops together.
Last minute finishes to complete by the end of the day. Drawer runners, hinges, doors and a second coat of Osmo hardwax oil. Delivery day tomorrow.
We have loved working on something so different from usual. This is the best part of making bespoke furniture, there is always something totally unique waiting to be made. Our deadline is only a couple of days away, but I couldn’t resist posting a few pictures of progress so far.
Work on our workshop roof is now complete and as the winter approaches, it seemed a fitting end to make a bonfire with any last bits of timber from the old roof. A symbolic end to the work. We can at last get on with more pressing things inside the workshop!
So before another winter of worry begins we are delighting in making the roof over our heads good again.
Just visited La Journee des Creatives at the gorgeous abbaye at La Roë https://www.facebook.com/JustineetCathy/ . Inspiring! We were asked to join the exhibitors this year but couldn’t for various reasons. We are definitely going to be putting it in the diary for next year!
