COMMISSION AND DESIGN
A small selection of my original mirror and furniture design creations with some period featured furniture reproductions.
These pieces were handmade, gilded and polished from scaled drawings taken from client supplied photographs or specifications.
Hotel Du Vin humidors and Wine Cellar Box.
My designed and handmade bespoke marquetry Wine Cellar and Cigar Humidor boxes are inlaid with various exotic wood veneers and edged with solid timber mouldings.
The Wine Cellar box exterior depicts scenes from a vaulted cellar, the interior is lined with velvet, fitted with a leather bound tray and furnished with sterling silver wine accessories.
My humidor designs are based on the facades of some of the first hotels owned by Hotel Du Vin. The interiors are lined with cedar wood and fitted with a secret drawer, cedar tray, humidifier and hygrometer.
DESIGN AND BUILD PROCESS
These cabinet projects included designing, prototype modelling, construction, modification, preparation, finishing and final assembly. The images below show the different stages of the build from the design to nearing completion. The final paint decoration was completed by the client.
