We currently have so much work on, that we are up against the clock to get a huge amount done before we can take a week off with the family in July. But we are really enjoying the current challenge of working on a completely new oak refectory table design and large oak coffee table for a client out in Bermuda who will be relocating to Dorset very shortly. She has a moving in deadline of mid-June we have promised to meet. There is still so much to do!
We’ve spent a lot of time with this client discussing finishes for both the dining table and coffee table. She’d like a mid-grey/taupe under tone with a hint of white on top but to still see the colour of the oak come through and we’ve gone for Osmo polyx oil tints to help us achieve this. I think we are just about there. I can’t wait to see it on the completed table.
And we have redrawn the designs many times to get everything exactly right. But this is time so well worth spent when the design turns out like this. The curves of this chunky oak refectory base are just beautiful. The pieces of sustainable oak we have used have a wonderful grain pattern and our client is already super excited to see everything coming together. We always send our clients pictures as we go to really help them to feel part of all the processes we go through to complete their project.
We are hoping to get the construction of the dining table finished this week, with the rest of the coffee table and finishing completed by the end of next. The whole of June is earmarked for the making of two oak kitchen units for delivery in France, so we have to be on time.
We are getting there! Can’t wait to take the finished pictures soon. 🙂
The finished pictures are now up on the Curved Base Refectory Table product page – check them out!
