Bespoke Joinery Skipton
Integrating stylish and practical bespoke joinery in your home.
When a piece of bespoke joinery becomes part of of your home instead of stand alone furniture, we love the challenge! Working in this old property was no exception. This was a commission in an old cottage in Settle to fit a bespoke book case and cabinet in to one alcove and a cabinet based tv stand that allowed access to the services behind. With a property of this age trying to find a straight datum is something of a challenge itself. After an initial measure up the main joinery and cabinetry work was done in our workshop and pre assembled. With birch ply cabinets making up the bulk of the piece with a shelf and plug access. Tulip wood shaker doors were measured, made and fitted using a simple square edge style.
Once the bulk of the joinery was done the second phase was to build on site to get all the cabinets to fit to the old plastering and stonework. All edges of the joinery have been scribed to fit perfectly in to there surrounding including the 40mm chunky oak floating shelving. Personally when it comes to shelving sometimes seeing the fixings is unsightly on such and expensive cut of wood so using epoxy resin and threaded bar we floated the shelves in situation. all you see now is the oiled oak with all it character and no distractions. Oak tops were made to size and fitted on the cabinets to match.
Hand painted shaker doors in Farrow and Ball
All the shaker doors were hand painted in Stiffkey blue by Farrow and ball. A colour that really compliments the oak and has a very bold feel. A primer and 3 coats are applied to ensure the rich colour is as vibrant and deep as possible. Final touches applied on site and all the scribes painted to match. At TF building we offer all CAD work with our estimates so you can see what the final piece will look like and how it will be built. At this point we can change colours easily and help you decide on the final product. If you would like a free estimate then please head over to our contacts page and drop us and email. Please bear in mind sometimes we can have a bit of a waiting list for new commissions. view more of our recent work here
