Oak staircase

I normally work in and around Brighton but sometimes travel a bit further afield. This job took me all the way to the Isle of Mann! The staircase was for a timber framed building. It was a really beautiful place and I wanted the staircase to do it justice. Sometimes it's hard to fit finished joinery around the rustic angles and curves of oak beams but I think I got it about right.

Brighton shop front

I don't normally do commercial work but when the vintage clothes retailer 'Beyond Retro' approached me to design a shop front for their new Brighton store I jumped at the chance. The shop is located in the trendy North Laines area of Brighton and it was nice working so centrally in such a bustling atmosphere. The building was listed so my brief was to replicate the original doors quite closely. I came up with a design which kept the industrial feel of the original bi-fold sliding doors. The georgian wired glass I used was in keeping with this industrial look.
The Beyond Retro lettering on the doors is a stick on vinyl as is the anchor logos on the windows. All in all a great job to take on! The clients are really happy and it's good walking past the shop knowing the work that went into them... pretty cool!

The original sliding doors.. the building was being used as a car park.

My design for the new shop front

Fitting took three days..

All done on schedule for the grand opening!
