  • Creativity at Christmas

    Amongst the pre-Christmas rush at British Hardwoods, Tony has been hard at work with his own specialist project. Tony has spent the last couple of days creating a very organic looking king-sized oak bed frame.

    The corner posts have been created from air dried oak beams and fixed together with draw peg mortise and tenon joints. The headboard has been produced from Waney Edge English Oak with the remaining pieces of the bed made from hand-planed from kiln-dried French Oak.

    It looks to be a very sturdy frame, I'm sure Tony will test it over Christmas to see how well it holds.
