FILLY DRESSING TABLE
A delicate oval table ideal as a dressing table, but just as lovely in any other position.
The under-rail and drawer are hand chip-carved by a maker and their very sharp gauge chisel. The sycamore tree is seen by many as a weed. I rather like weeds. I also find its timber deliciously sensual. Its delicately pale grain has a shimmering, lustrous look and a silky softness to the touch. I decided to layer more texture onto the surfaces of its oval apron with hand chip carving to play with the light and feel upon it.

Made for you
The piece has been chosen because we love them and have proven to be irrepressibly popular and you’ve demanded we make them again and hopefully again and again. They are not faits accomplis, or written in tablets of stone, their dimensions, materials and finishes, can be tweaked. This may begin to nudge them towards, or indeed run headlong into, our Slow Furniture-Making Society and the price differences that will entail. All will be agreed before the onset of construction.
