Bespoke Handmade Tables Commissioned in Reclaimed Elm

A chap called me up to see if I was interested in some ‘old’ Elm boards. He told me the story of how they had been in his Father’s barn since he was knee high and had come from an old flour mill 200 hundred years old. The chap was now 87! He was still a sharp old chisel when it came to the price though.  However, I managed to make four bespoke handmade tables, of which this is one. It’s new home is Keston in Kent.

Bespoke Handmade Kitchen Table in Reclaimed Elm With Oak Base

This handmade  kitchen table was part of a commission including side and lamp tables. The top is in reclaimed character elm with a natural finish to highlight the beautiful grain and an oak base. We think it works pretty well. The fantastic table pictures were taken by Celia www.straingephotography.co.uk

Client comment –

Dear James
I just wanted to say thank you very much for the beautiful side tables you made for me.  Your help and advice in making sure that they fitted into the room so well, both in size and looks was invaluable, and the compliments they have received prove that your craftsmanship is second to none.
Once again, thank you.
