New Student Work. October 2006

These spectacular tables were made by Greig Fensome during the second half of a one year furniture making course with us. They are made in Australian Jarrah, a timber more well known for use on railway sleepers or dock pilings than fine hand made furniture. But that tells you more about Australians than Jarrah.

This Oak Hall table made by Michael Connolly features a sensuous curved and laminated lower rail and delicate legs. The drawer is fitted with a Cedar of Lebanon drawer bottom and has a Rosewood drawer pull.

These are an unmatched pair of jewellery cabinets made very beautifully by David Redwine. Unmatched in the sense that the curved doors have straight closing styles as one would expect on one cabinet but wiggly closing styles on the other, surprising, sensuous and rather nice. They are both made in Swiss Pearwood with Rosewood details.
