Thank you Hector for help with planing...

...and Ed for help with construction.

The first catspaw oak bench was made as a companion piece to {nook}'s Dovetail Table.

The second just fits under the kitchen window.

Old cupboard doors were combined with beech to make an airing cupboard which doubles up as a staircase to the attic.

Beech wood makes good bookshelves...


...and kitchen shelves and more bookshelves...

...and in the bathroom an oak and slate shelf (actually a slice of snooker table) supports the world.

These Indian painted doors, brought back from Jodhpur by Alice, combined with pegged beech make a bedroom cabinet.


The leftovers are always the most beautiful - just enough for a coat-rack and bicycle rest.


Thank you Alice and Tristram for inspiring me.
