This is a kitchen I designed and made a few years back. It was really exciting to design and over see the whole project from lighting to specifying the floor. Ive been hard at work designing a kitchen this passed week. Really excited about how its looking and cant wait to show it all in the making. #aliceblogg #solidwoodkitchen #british #britishtimber #designermaker #designer #creator #makersmovement #makersgonnamake

I have fallen in love with these little handles. A playfulness and character to them putting the final touches to the piece. Turned then hand chiseled facets. I am intrigued in the touch of the hand and although we try to create perfection the beauty of imperfection of the human hand. What lovely cedar grain in the top of this chest of drawers on show at my studio during @dorsetartweeks Burr Oak outside apple hand dovetailed drawers and cedar drawer bottoms. One special piece. Alongside the…

Too many exciting projects happening at once at the studio. Many hands making magic. Hand carved linen fold panels. Ive fallen in love with the detailing on these doors.

Sunday wood stacking. Ive been clearing the workshop out of all my scraps a really hard thing to do. Im opening my studio for @dorsetartweeks Saturday and I desperately need some more space and to de-clutter. One positive is our wood stack at home for winter is looking pretty good. One plus point to working in wood is you never get cold. #aliceblogg

When making new pieces inspiration comes from many different places. I work in solid British Hardwoods making pieces that will last for generations. Knowing each piece will be passed down from generation to generation is such a pleasing thought. Understanding construction and the movement of timber as a material is one of the most important factors of designing and creating pieces to ensure they will last. I have a large library of books from my grandad and ever expanding which I always turn…

When I see piles of logs like this I dream for the right projects to come along to create with them. One very lovely pippy Oak log looks like its pretty dry too. Local Timber mills little hidden gems are the best for the imagination to run wild. #aliceblogg

Textures and shapes in this piece. Curved and shapes top now working on the base. This is a sample for the bottom part now to make its curved form. Its all coming together slowly. Bespoke pieces of furniture take time to make. Sometimes I crave the quickness of a small piece but the satisfaction of furniture and rooms at the end is incredible. Intense for a long time and lots of thought into every area but worth every moment. #aliceblogg
