Structural heavy turned green oak timber posts & columns
We can machine heavy timber into hexagonal or octagonal columns and we can also turn heavy posts for use as structural posts in timber framed projects or as decorative columns.
Below is a pair of turned softwood posts shown on the lathe and in place after painting. Thank you to our very favourite children's author for the photo!
This post has been fine sanded and waxed and would be a striking centre post for a spiral staircase or grand structural pillars.
The timber is shown being sawmilled as an octagonal post .

Hardwood Entrance Gates
All our gates are hand made to order. We are very proud of our repuation for attention to detail and our use of only the best quality carefully selected timber in our gates. Our gates are heavily and solidly built, using timber dimensions of ex 3in for the frames and 3/4in boards. Price Guide: As each gate is made individually to bespoke order, prices will vary according to size and specification but a guide to our prices is shown below:
3. 'The Kingsbridge'. This is available made to measure in seasoned air dried Oak or Iroko. The top profile can be made flat as in the Kingsbridge 'A', or with convex or concave curve or with a sweeping top profile as shown in the Kingsbridge 'B'.
Below is an example of a bespoke gate made to individual specification. This gate was made to replace a decayed church gate at St Andrews Church, Buckland Monachorum, and was made to replicate the original design.

Other Bespoke Joinery Projects:
Art and Sculpture Display plinths
A variety of exhibition stands and art and sculpture display plinths.
Solid oak art sculpture plinth / Exhibition stand/ Table
Please contact us for sizes and prices of these exhibition plinths
The sculpture plinth shown above measures 300 x 300 x 600. It is made in solid 'green' (unseasoned) English Oak and this particular plinth has been fine sanded and waxed. There are a myriad of uses for these beautiful tactile blocks including tables, chairs, display stands or sculpture plinths. Green Oak is unseasoned and will show some splitting and checking as it dries. Seasoned Oak is a more expensive but more stable alternative if required.
Shown above are flat pack for ease of transport, exhibition display stands.
The exhibits shown above are courtesy of artist Tessa Jane.

BESPOKE TURNED ENGLISH OAK POSTS
These turned English Oak posts look great cut down as sculpture plinths or art display blocks. Maximum diameter for a lathe turned plinth would be 400.
Andy made this replica cross from seasoned air dried oak as part of a restoration / conservation project for a local church.
This is a bespoke hand made heavy oak rustic farmhouse / refectory table base commissioned to support a very heavy solid slate table top.
CNC Router machining projects
Our most exciting recent development has been the commissioning of our huge industrial IMA 3 axis CNC router which can cut woods, plastic and solid surfaces. In addition to allowing for the accurate to extremely high tolerences and repeatable machining of timber and panels for our own products, we are now able to offer CNC timber, sheet material router cutting services in Tavistock, Devon to a huge range of customers in the west country and further afield, including model makers, exhibition designers, shopfitters, boatbuilders, classic car restoration, ie wooden dashboards, door carvings, interior and exterior decorations, wood panels, sign boards, wooden frames, moldings, musical instruments, and furniture and kitchen components and general joiners.
We have made exhibition stands and art and sculpture exhibition display stands and artists sculpture plinths from both CNC router produced panels and from solid oak. We have just completed an order for 200 Beech wood frames with a stepped internal moulding and we are able to accurately machine our own products to produce amazing quality and very tight tolerances.
We recently completed a special order for 200 of these Beech wood frames which are deeper than a normal picture frame and have a machined step.
Below is a bespoke frame made from a beautifully featured piece of Cornish tiger striped seasoned oak.
