Please bear with me, more pics are coming soon!!!!

Table legs

I loved this project.  A local man had made these tabletops from reclaimed hardwood flooring and wanted steel bands put around them and legs made and fitted.  The results speak for themselves.  It was great to work with another maker too.

Chain Hearts

A fathers’ day gift requested to show the family connection and the love of cycling.  Simple and lovely.  Made from reclaimed bike chain and an old pine board.

Pond Cover

The result of this piece of work is fabulous, even though I do say so myself!!  It has two functions apart from being rather lovely to look at; it prevents the local heron from stealing the fish and it provides a safe cover for the pond in case of falls or trips by the owners.  The steel is set on its edge which makes it much lighter to look at but also makes it very strong.  The client wanted something designed in the Charles Rennie Macintosh style and she was very pleased with the result.

Coptic Cross

I loved this project too.  A local lady had this brass Coptic Cross that she liked to have standing on her hearth where it could catch the sun and cast amazing shadows but it kept falling over.  My brief was to create a base for it that matched its style without being fussy or too big.  The result was a neat, heavy base that the cross fixes to almost invisibly.  It was great to be able to re-purpose and old piece of steel for this as it showed its age and wasn’t too new looking.

Railings

During lockdown a lot of people realised that they wanted new railings for the front of their houses and I was around to provide these!!!  From very simple to a bit more detailed anything is possible.

Shelf Brackets

I’ve been asked several times to make bespoke heavy weight shelf brackets, usually for really interesting and beautiful pieces of wood or very specific requirements.

Clematis Trellis

This lovely piece is designed to lift the plant up and over to leave space for tomato plants to be grown against the wall.  It is fixed securely to the wall at three points.

Lantern / Tea Light Holder

This looks like a little ‘Torro’ and is to hold a little lantern or hanging tea light holders.  It has a stake to push into the ground.  Also these simple stylish shepherds crook style hooks.

Big Planter

Inspired by a tulip this large planter is now a few years old and is standing the test of time well.  The cape daisies in it however are admittedly a bit scruffy!!!!

House Number

The front door is set back from the street and the house number was hard to see, putting this within a recess in the gate post solved the problem.  The street has lots of trees in it so the leaf theme fitted beautifully.

Welly Boot Stand or Rack

Designed to fit into a small storm porch but still store the wellies of a family of four finished in grey to vanish into the background. The second is a smaller version to fit a couples’ garden shoes and wellies, finished in black hammerite for a very hard wearing finish.

Rose Arch

Designed to replace a previous structure for an established rambling rose.  The stylised hearts match existing metalwork at the property.

Jasmine Trellis

Set of 5 pieces designed to overlap and float above the wall.  This was a lovely job to do.  The jasmine only needed to keep the sticks for a week or two until it properly attached itself to the new trellis system.
