Wall-to-wall fitted wardrobe

This beautiful property at the top of the town has a view that looks across parkland and beyond, over almost the whole of the city. But as is the case with much new-build property both in Brighton & Hove and elsewhere there is lack of storage facilities. The clients came to me first to build ...

Two great cabinet projects

I decided to present these two projects together as they share some of the features I have been developing this year. While there is much in common in the design of these two pieces, with both comprising shelving above a run of 3 cabinets, each has been tailor made to suit the clients requirements.  The first, ...

Study Furniture

On many occasions over the years I have been commissioned to work for academics from the University of Sussex. Most often, as you might guess, to build bookcases. This slightly larger scale project includes a desk, shelving, a drawer unit and a storage cabinet. A solid oak kitchen worktop serves here as a desk. Built ...

Illuminated Cabinets

Here I have designed and built a pair of illuminated display cabinets. They hang above some existing fitted furniture. The toughened glass shelving and  glazed doors allow the LED fittings to light the whole cabinet. Another project at the same property is pictured below, a corner bookcase, spray finished with white paint.

Television Cabinet / Sideboard

My clients for this project were looking to refresh their living room and get a new look cabinet for a new television. The combination of the solid oak worktop with white satin cabinets has created a fresh look. All cables are hidden away, and boxes housed in the shelves beneath the television. The cabinet doors ...

Fitted Bedroom Furniture

Again, this project was to create some elegant fitted bedroom furniture for a newly built loft extension.A loft extension can add valuable space to a small property, but finding the best solutions for storage in unusual shaped spaces requires some careful consideration. I was very pleased with the results pictured here. As you can see, ...

Alcove fitted cabinets

Recently the most common work I have been asked to do is building cabinets fitted into alcoves, often with a few shelves above. I have collected some photographs here to illustrate the last few similar projects.

Fitted wardrobe with oak doors

The photos here show a recently completed project to build and install a fitted wardrobe into a loft extension. Loft extensions can be difficult places to work as space and access are often limited. The ceiling slopes back behind the wardrobe finishing just a meter from the floor. I have used the space at the back of ...

Pine wardrobe

I have been very busy lately working on various projects. Also, I have been surprised by the large number of enquiries in what I had previously thought to be the quietest part of the year. This project was completed a few weeks ago, so here are a couple of photographs showing the finished piece. The ...

Cherry shelving unit & oak cabinet

Update: The shelving unit for records, as mentioned in my last post, is now complete . The first photo here shows the completed unit before it had been varnished. In the second photo the unit has now been spray-lacquered to bring out the beauty of the cherry-wood veneer. Click on photographs to enlarge.

Wardrobes with sliding doors

The large fitted wardrobe from the last blog post is now finished. This triple wardrobe includes 4 hanging rails and 8 drawers. The cabinets are constructed from melamine laminated MDF. The sliding doors are grooved to emulate traditional paneled doors and finished with satinwood paint.

Cabinets with shelving unit

For this project I built and installed custom made shelving and storage units for clients in Brighton & Hove. The photograph (click to enlarge) shows one of a pair units. The cupboards and shelves were built to the clients specification in my Hove workshop. The example pictured here is a made-to-measure cabinet built to house ...
