It’s time again for the woolly jumpers and I have to admit that my intentions of keeping this news page well fed has been difficult.
My excuse is I have been very busy with commissions, my book and of course the Neat range (see Furniture & Cabinetmaking, November 2014, issue 224, page 11, article on the Large Neat Hinge within the Editor’s round-up section). I introduced the Neat trim a month ago – sales have been excellent and it has received quite a lot of interest from the woodworking media (expect an article in the near future). It has been hard to hold stock of the Neat hinge and Neat lock due to some very large orders which tend to wipe the shelves clean so I appreciate your patience and loyalty of customers who are currently waiting on the next delivery. Ok, enough about hardware and tools, what about boxes? Well it has been very busy on this side and again having very patient customers really helps. I am currently finishing a large Art Deco stationery box which has been veneered in Macassar Ebony with MOP inlays around the escutcheon and initials. I have also just taken on a gentleman’s shaving box which will be designed in a Victorian style so if you want to keep up to date on the latest work why not check out my facebook page and give me a wee like. I post most days and you can view uploads of my current projects.
