A couple final detail progress shots. The modified leg detail with mortise and tenon joinery locked with brass pins, and a fun little handle made from spalted maple, ebony, and again brass pins. My end table is all set for finish and I'm psyched with what I was able to create in 3 weeks. I hope everyone is as proud of their builds as I am!
Step 1. Greet a friend at the door.
Step 2. Grab a bottle of red to share from the wine rack to your left.
Step 3. Relax and have fun.
Step 4. Sneak back to your entrance hall to grab a second look at the wide oak boards of the characterful farmhouse door.

The Great Hall of Oakham is the finest surviving example of Norman domestic architecture in Europe, built between 1180 and 1190.
Oakham Castle underwent a major renovation, thanks to a £2.1 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Working closely with John Wright of Weston Allison Wright, B J Waller produced an ironmongery specification for high-end British made Frank Allart Door Furniture. The ironmongery supplied was in unlacquered polished brass that was perfectly in keeping with the aesthetics of the historical castle. The fine quality of the ironmongery chosen means it is also robust enough to cope with the high number of visitors to the historic site.
“When Weston Allison Wright approached us regarding this project, Oakham Castle had already announced the date of the grand re-opening which was only four weeks away, so meeting the deadline for this project was a big challenge.”
“With B J Waller, Weston Allison Wright, Woodhead Heritage and Frank Allart all working together to reach the end goal, we were able to supply some fantastic products that fit in harmony with the existing Ironmongery, creating a wonderful end result.”

Story of a shop....Open the door and “they” will come! Who is “they” you ask? “They” are two salesmen, lookie loos and one contractor who was sent by the “owner” to “fix a problem” (Spoiler alert... I am the owner. I told him to come back when the other owner was around @riverside50 I’ve heard he’s nice 😳) . . . .
After the acid cleared the air, the door was shut, and work resumed. A little dance was done while looking at the gorgeous patina next to me. 😍 . . . .
Enjoy the music and #staydustymyfriends
