A lovely friend of my Dad's kindly commissioned this piece with the specification that it was to house LPs, CDs and all other TV paraphernalia. We decided on some handsome Scottish Oak and I added a subtle walnut detail to liven it up. The house has an amazing red kitchen which is bold yet sleek with smooth curved corners. I wanted to carry this through in the design of the TV unit - hence it's solidity and curved CD shelves. I finished it with many grades of sandpaper, care, some shellac and finally white wax. This is a finish that I favour for the texture it gives the piece and the colours that come through.

with CD and LP in place
With my kind, extremely patient and hard working helpers we managed to move all my hoardings from the old Gifford location to my new home near Cousland. It was sad to say farewell to the lovely people at Chippendale especially wonderful Clare and Sandy who have been kind friends and offered so much help and support over the years I have been there. If you are reading a massive thank you to you both.
Happy Thursdays to you all, keep cosy and dry.
