Amidst the Pre-Christmas rush British Hardwoods boss Tony and woodwork craftsman Jake have been beavering away on their own specialist projects. Tony has spent the last couple of days producing a fantastic looking hand-planed bed, just in time to help accommodate a house full of Christmas guests.
The bed is fixed together using through wedged mortise and tenon joints with the corner posts being cut from air dried oak sleepers. The sides and ends of the bed have been cut from waney edged 41mm oak. Tony seems very pleased with his impressive creation and has saved his guest from potential Christmas back-ache by sleeping on the floor!
A Less Urgent but equally impressive creation is Jake's hand-made coffee table. The table consists of individual pieces of each species of wood laminated together to create a brilliant striped look. Everything from the table top to the legs, and even the pegs for the mortise and tenon joints are made from various species of laminated woods.
Jake plans on giving the table as a present to a mystery person. We won't announce it to avoid spoiling any surprises!
