Merry Christmas To All! 14/12/12

Finished Student Pieces

As 50 week student Luke Olney is now coming to the end of his course I thought we'd show off some the work he has produced during his time with us. For his first project he made a jewellery box in bog oak (5,000 year old wood preserved in a bog) with a sycamore interior. It looks deceptively simple and was actually quite a complicated piece to make due to the curved front and tapered sides.

For his third piece he wanted to try laminating and so came up with this elegant design for a guitar stand in sycamore, brass and leather.

Chris has also now finished his jewellery box in wenge, aluminium and suede. He is now working on a desk and I will be posting pictures soon.

New Shelves

Now, I know new shelves doesn't sound like the most exciting news but we like new things here at 'robinson house studio', and we think our new shelves look amazing! Marc bought some acrylic already cut to width. polished the edges and I installed them onto the glass wall in our office. As you can see, Marc has already filled them up with samples, shells and anything that may inspire us.

This will be the last blog till we are back in the the new year so we wish you a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year. Don't drink too much and I hope Santa brings you some nice new tools!
