A customer had a 19th Century Mule chest which at some point in its life had been cut down. He wanted it lifting by a couple of inches and asked me to make and fit a set of bun feet , to be made from solid Oak. You can see from the pictures a little of the process involved. The bottom picture shows 2 of the bun feet which have been turned from a single piece of Oak, ready to be separated, polished and finally fit to the chest.
This old pine church pew had a lot of sentimental value for the customer. As it is kept outside it had unfortunately become very grey and weathered. I was asked to clean it up and give it a sand, then put a protective exterior finish on it. Garden furniture isn’t my usual line of work to be honest, but I was happy to help out- here are the before and after photos..
