Here's some images of a recent custom furniture build I did. I absolutely loved making this coffee table. Using beautiful, solid hardwoods and making furniture is my favourite part of my job.
A client from my home town of Celbridge, Co. Kildare had come to me with an image of a coffee table she had seen and was considering buying. But there were a few issues that stopped her from making the purchase. The table she had seen was a little larger than she needed for her space. It was also made from oak. Even though she loved oak, it didn't complement anything else in her living space -which already had some walnut in it. Oak was going to clash with the palette in her room.
So I designed and made this piece. She absolutely loved it! I wish I could have captured the look on her face when I delivered it to her. It's such a great feeling knowing you've taken great care and worked hard to create a great piece that you can be proud of, and then for the recipient of your work to love it and cherish it is really special.
Loved doing this one. Peace and love.
