Walnut Dining Chairs go to Wales.

This bank holiday weekend I am on the road with a car load of chairs. We carefully checked that, with a squeeze, I could carry all ten chairs in my Audi A6 Estate – only just, it means I sit hunched over the wheel, but it’s worth it. At last the chairs are done, Ben and Steve have finished with shaping, sanding and polishing, and so ten lovely chairs go off to their new home

Without a photo we would have no record of the work, so before they left Darren Hull was “shooting them to bits.” Hundreds of exposures produced four good expressive images that tell some of the story for you, and hopefully show you some idea of how beautiful these girls are.
