Happy New Year 2012

I would like to wish everyone all the best for 2012, may this be the year when your dreams come true.

Been the start of a new year I can't help but reflect on our previous creations.

 I've given myself the difficult task of selecting three of my favourite pieces.

I hope you enjoy looking as much as we enjoyed making.

# 1 Wine Side Table
Created from recycled oak barrel staves, crafted using all hand tools.
As a maker very challenging and rewarding to create.
Amazing fiddleback in the top and an overall, elegant design. 

# 2
Recycled French Oak Barrel Sideboard.
Epic in length at 6m long passing through a living room and a dining room.
Sensational grain with many warm, rich tones.
 Plus the sideboard doubles as a fun adventure for children to explore.
What's not to love.

 # 3
Blackwood dining table incorporating light and dark tones of blackwood to create a beautiful contrast. Hand finished Mortise and tenon joints for the frame construction.
Simple and beautiful in design.

 Thank you for looking and please feel free to contact me anytime with any queries,
All the best,
                                       Steve Jones.
