Cabinet MakingCabinet Making
Before 'good cabinet making' comes 'good design', taking into account, form, function and aesthetics. William Morris (one of the founders of the Arts and Crafts Revival Movement) said "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." This is our philosophy too. We design using your ideas and dimensions, working with you to create exactly what you want.
Cabinet making demands a wide range of skills; an eye for detail, experienced knowledge of materials and the ability to use a broad selection of hand and machine tools. Timber can be a difficult material to work with as it can shrink and contract across its grain and this must be taken into account in the furniture construction. However, there is nothing quite like the unique natural grain and texture of wood. We can also incorporate other materials in our work; we have used beaten copper, enamel, silver and brass inlays, marquetry, coloured glass, iron work and so on. Where necessary we can work with other craftsmen possessing differing specialist skills and incorporate their work into ours.
