Behind the Scenes – Part One

Maybe it’s just us but we think that finding out how an object is made is just as exciting as seeing the finished item. In these posts we will share what goes on in our workshop and give you a glimpse behind the scenes, where the real magic happens!

These photos show the progress of a vanity unit; from preparing the timber to getting it ready to decorate.

The timber is prepared to the correct sizes ready to start assembly. This item is made from Tulip Wood (Poplar) which is a hardwood, ideal for painted furniture.

The frame has been assembled and is now waiting in the clean room for me to undercoat it! Once it has been undercoated, it will be taken to site and installed ready for the plumber to add the basins and taps. It will then get decorated and the drawers will be made to fit around the pipework.
