Upcycled Plan Chests

Built using a 60s plan chest which split naturally into two sets of three drawers and some beautifully figured mahogany salvaged from a school, I built these with the help of TV presenter and adventurer Rob Bell, who spent a few weeks at my workshop, learning woodworking skills whilst on holiday in the Cotswolds!

The mahogany tops with their beautiful grain, gave the coffee tables a stunning vintage look along with the bare steel hairpin legs. One of the tables now lives with a camera collector who stores his photographs in the drawers and the second is with a collector of vintage railway memorabilia for storing large prints.

At UNIQ, my aim is to save quality furniture from landfill whilst producing high quality, beautiful new pieces for the future!
