A few things to do with scaffolding planks

I recently discovered a stash of old scaffolding planks….These boards are made from a good quality pine and are full of character.

I also had a few furniture commissions on the go…

One was a memorial bench for a regeneration consultancy called Renaisi based in Shoreditch East London, and the other from a private client to design and build a giant farmhouse table.

I decided to make use of this valuable material source ….below is the result – strong, sturdy, salvaged free-range furniture.

Part of the brief was to make the table ´flatpack´..... So it was designed so the legs are able to be un-bolted for easy transport.
