About this project

Made as an exhibition piece for the 2016 Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design this fine sideboard uses an exceptional example of English brown oak and 4,000 year old bog oak from the Cambridgeshire fens.

The rich honey colour of the brown oak provides a frame to four stunning bog oak sliding doors. Chip carved handles along the edge of the doors provide an interesting detail to the eye and hand revealing a rich internal space, this detail is carried through into the dark bog oak legs.
