Replacement gate finished in stain.

This is a copy of the original which had rotted beyond economic repair. For me this was an interesting project because it involved some curved work which does not come up that often so it gave me a chance to blow off the dust on the bandsaw and use it to achieve the curve. Each mortice and tenon joint was pegged using ¾” Oak dowel as well as glue. This will ensure that the joints remain tight. The old gate had rotted because the joints had opened and rain water had sat in the shoulder between the stile and rails.

This much cherished Victorian bench has been part of the family for over a century, with photographs of grandfather sat on it as a young man. The rot in the feet of each leg being the result of many years standing on damp ground and ‘old age’. The solution was to sit the bench onto my work bench propped up and the legs cut back. Oak shoes were then glued on and Oak pegs introduced to make sure that the shoes hold fast for years to come.

This bookcase made for a job in Southampton, manufactured from Southern Yellow Pine, was made in three sections and assembled on site. The bookcase strips you can see enable you to maximise the storage capacity of the case. The shelves sit on feet that are inserted into the grooves on the strips, which are fitted into a machined rebate. This way they are unobtrusive and you get the maximum amount of storage from each shelf. There are two options available: chrome or brass.

The case has birch-faced backs, which complement the pine nicely.

Southern yellow pine is a superb species of timber from Oregon in the USA. I am able to obtain this in widths of 287mm (11 ½ “) and in thicknesses of 21, 27 and 33mm (7/8”, 1 1/8”,  1 ¼” ). Lengths up to 5 meters (16ft + ) are available.

Southern yellow ‘Pinus Strobus’ is a straight grained timber that has a low shrinkage and very little movement, so it is not prone to cupping, that is turning up at the edges on wide boards. It’s used in pattern making, carving, drawing boards, high-class joinery and general interior carpentry. It is not suitable for exterior work in exposed areas or for boat building. This is a beautiful wood, the grain often displaying pronounced reddish-brown streaks on a pale straw background.
