Sideboard in English Oak
Our dedication to working with the finest woods from the British Isles has notched up a gear with a celebration of English oak in its many forms.
Made as an exhibition piece for the 2016 Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design this fine sideboard uses an exceptional example of English brown oak and 4,000 year old bog oak from the Cambridgeshire fens.
The rich honey colour of the brown oak provides a frame to four stunning bog oak sliding doors. Chip carved handles along the edge of the doors provide an interesting detail to the eye and hand revealing a rich internal space, this detail is carried through into the dark bog oak legs.
The interior is split into three sections, a large central area with adjustable shelf and rear cable management port and two side sections with a drawer and storage. This scale and weight of the sideboard would allow it to be well suited to a hifi / media unit or as a great drinks lifestyle cabinet.
