The Lion’s Face Table

No Comments

This is our beautiful, hand-crafted coffee table, created from British burr oak wood. The table is solid and heavy and the colour and grain of the oak wood is really eye-catching – this would make a stunning centre-piece.

 

 

The grain of the oak is superb and covered with natural burry patterns. If you look into the markings, the impression of a lion’s face jumps out at you, complete with eyes and nose! The tawny light brown colour of the wood is perfect for the illusion. Take a look yourself and see what you think. It’s why we called this piece The Lion’s Face Table!

 

                                              

The top of the coffee table has been crafted from two adjoining boards from the same tree, which have been carefully chosen and book-matched to create a handsome mirrored effect.

As with all our furniture pieces, the whole surface of the coffee table has been repeatedly finished and polished by hand, to produce a smoothed and tactile feel – it is a joy to run your hand over it and to touch the grain.

 

    

We craft our furniture using both traditional and modern techniques, to the highest standards. We trust our pieces will last for decades to come and hopefully become family heirlooms of the future.

It’s quite unusual to find burr oak of this quality – it’s rather special.  As furniture makers, we feel we are entrusted to do justice to our native trees, when they have to be felled or pruned. We aim to give the tree a second chance to hopefully last and be appreciated for many more years yet.

 

                     

The Lion’s Face Table has been crafted by our qualified Uniqueworks cabinet-maker, as a one off and unique item, at our small workshop in Pembrokeshire. Everything we make is an individual piece, inspired by the wood itself. Please contact us if you would like us to make you an item of furniture, unique to your specifications. We have been crafting furniture at Uniqueworks for twelve years and have many customer Testimonials available, if you would like to see them.

Each piece of Uniqueworks furniture is signed individually by our furniture-maker and comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity.

Contact us for purchase details. Collection and delivery details on request.

Price : £735

Length : 96cm    Width:  70cm     Height:  45cm

Wasteland – Or Space For Nature?

No Comments

There is a precious strip of wasteland located between our workshop and the Cleddau Estuary water’s edge, here in Pembroke Dock. Nature has re-colonised an area of old industrialised dockland and it has been our privilege to look directly over it for the last eleven years. From scoured concrete, tarmac and grit has emerged surprising riches of flora and fauna which have bit by bit, made it their home. It is a hidden gem of wildflowers, birds and insects, even a few mammals.


To people who know it and regularly come to walk here, it’s an accidental haven, an open lung of green in the town, somewhere to get away, walk your dog, look out over the waters, watch the ferry from Ireland come in, watch the open sky sunset, think and dream, maybe find a little bit of space.


We’ve found out, after years of rumours, projected plans and meeting, that the whole area is to be flattened for a lorry park. Feel so sad for the wildlife that lives there. Walking around today, watched butterflies fluttering round, laying eggs which may not even get to hatch. Don’t think we can bear to watch…
We need local jobs here for sure, but is a lorry park really going to provide that many, long term. And at a time when we’re all needing a bit more sense of wellbeing, does it need to be at the expense of this much loved area of green space.
Maybe what Pembroke Dock people (and wildlife) could do with is actually a nature park.

In Situ – Our Furniture In Customer’s Homes

No Comments

We sometimes feel a pang when a piece of furniture that we’ve really worked on, is collected from the workshop to disappear to a new life in somebody’s home. We’ll usually never see it again. Sometimes however, we deliver the furniture ourselves to install the pieces in people’s homes – and sometimes customers kindly send us photos of their new furniture in place. It’s always fascinating and a privilege.

Here’s a tiny window into the world of others – and their/our furniture!

 

Residing at the foot of the bed in this stunning bedroom on the edge of the Brecons, is our burry oak panelled chest, complete with a natural-edge lid.

 

This magnificently grainy, natural-edge console table, crafted from beautiful Scottish elm wood, has been teamed up with a splendid mirror in a living room in Oxfordshire.

 

                      A large centre-piece cross-legged oak dining table, perfect for entertaining, is now in a lovely North Pembrokeshire home.

 

One of our favourite’s – The Lion’s Paw coffee table – so named because of the fabulously rich and large burry patterns of its cat’s paw grain. It fitted perfectly into the comfortable fireside living space of lovely customers in Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire.

 

 

This modern take on a traditional refectory style table was commissioned as part of a family wedding party celebration. It will go on to grace the terrace and provide outdoor dining space for this idyllic Pembrokeshire cottage. Even the hens have given it their vote of approval.

 

 

This traditional Welsh dresser was one of a number of pieces requested by one of our customers for their effortlessly stylish home, near Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire. Made with oak from the Welsh Borders.

 

This large AV cabinet was commissioned to support and tidily house this impressive tv screen and all the attendant equipment and cables. The unit has clean, modern lines, but with decorative oak burr panels.

 

                                        We made this long oak bookcase for our customer’s contemporary new barn conversion, near Tenby.

 

In this lovely restored farmhouse in North Pembrokeshire, resides this wide, pale Welsh ashwood dining table, complete with natural edges and matching backed benches.

Dreaming of Your Own Welsh Dresser?

No Comments

Have you ever dreamed about owning your own perfect Welsh dresser? Now you can!

We have made many pieces of furniture over the last twelve years, but few give so much pleasure to our customers, as Welsh dressers. There is something deeply reassuring and homely about the look of them – timeless, practical and the opportunity to ‘dress’ them however best suits your personality. Whichever way your taste veers over the years – classic, farmhouse, vintage or sleek modern, there is always a place for the dresser and it will always be at the heart of the home.


Recently, we were commissioned to make a very traditional Welsh Dresser for a couple in Wiltshire and this is the result. Crafted in solid Welsh Borders oak.

We were lucky enough to receive a most welcome testimonial:

‘It took 10 years to convince my husband that our kitchen really needed a Welsh dresser! A visit back home to Wales and to Uniqueworks finally persuaded him. Jake built our dresser exactly to our requirements and we loved being kept updated on the progress of the project. Jake delivered our dresser and we were elated with the exceptional quality of the finished piece of furniture. Jake oozes enthusiasm and passion about his craft; his skill is evident in the quality of our wonderful dresser. Thank you very much and we firmly recommend this company to any new customers. You made my year.’

Sue and Phil Brocks, Wiltshire

 

 

Here are a few more of our bespoke Welsh Dressers and cabinets, crafted here in our Pembrokeshire workshop, West Wales.

    

 

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss making your dream Welsh dresser.
