Yew Mirrors

Its a wet morning here in Old Leake, Lincolnshire. In our workshop we have been
finishing off 3 Yew Natural Edge Mirrors. They are beautiful. They were
in our home for the last year or so, but we have decided to sell them.
The detail in the timber is stunning and we want to share them with others.
They each have waney edges and the clear lacquer gives the
frames such a lovely finish. These would look beautiful on any ones wall.

Spring has Sprung

Its now spring and outside is starting to look nice again.
Daffodils are popping up along with Snow Drops.
In the workshop we are turning bowls and toadstool.
Making new frames and now making Wall Sconce holders for Candles.
These have a very rustic feel, waxed with a dark Jacobean Wax.

New batch of Mirrors and Frames for sale

Well January is nearly over. Over the last few weeks we have been making frames
for pictures and mirrors. With various bespoke orders too.
We have been receiving some really good feedback about our frames
which is great.
At present I am stripping an old Gramophone, which is starting to look good.
And a Longbow is going to its new home on Sunday.
Looking forward to going to the wood yard in the next month or so, and looking through
their timber. Timber Yard equals Favourite place !!!!

Darling Buds of May Finished!

So We finally finished our Darling buds of May drinks cabinet
Trying to keep as close as possible to the original prop from the show-
using screen grabs off the 24yr old TV show! and some drawings
drawn up by designer Chris Freeman.
We hope Pop Larkin would be proud to serve drinks from it, and the
customer thought it was Perfick!
