Sometimes the best stuff comes from kismet, the serendipitous moment. Like these slatted pieces. For instance, some of the candle holders, and the slatted tables. they are all inspired by great finds, whether baulks of timber to make the candle holders, or when we found this cache of salvaged barn-wood, we couldn't help grabbing all that we could carry away.
Made from thin strips of cedar, planed smooth, and attached to four cedar columns. The shoji is from mulberry paper glued to the frames, and the main element on the lamp front is darkened with a coffee stain before oiling.
The lamp fitting is a standard E-5 (candelabra base), with a dimmer and accepts up to 60w bulbs.
Tall Slatted Tables
We rip down the wood and sand it, then build the table with vintage 6d nails and paint it in a wonderful shabby pink or stain it to your desire.
This is a terrific addition to any home, functional, beautiful, and a lot of fun.
Wide Slatted Tables
Like the benches, we couldn't help grabbing all that we could carry away of this wood. We rip down the wood and sand it, then build the table with vintage 6d nails and paint it in a wonderful shabby pink or stain it to your desire.

Japanese Inspired Tool Box
My take on the traditional Japanese carpenter’s toolbox, 41 x 20 x 17cm. The top slides over and lifts out.
It locks in place with an angled wooden key. The box uses no metal in its construction, glue and bamboo nails only.
For the traditional carpenter, the Dōgu need a proper conveyance, this particular one is marked with the symbols for Saws, Planes, and Chisels from the Mesirow, Herman book of nearly the same name, The care and use of Japanese Woodworking Tools
A lot of fun 42.5 x 16.5cm, perfect for flowers, garden supplies, kitchen ware, even tools. Ornamented with a carved onlay, in distressed blue. The handle is spokeshaved by hand to make the grip.
Try these in your mud room, laundry room, front hall, back of a closet...
Who knows what we'll make next!
The little crosses are maple or oak, and hang from hand-painted wooden beads, they are a very pretty ornament.
The little forest of snowy trees are so pretty on a table or side board.
We are just wrapping up a set of three custom cedar doors, as you can see below.
