Angela and Angus’s Wardrobe
Angus and Angela asked us to build a very particular style of Wardrobe in their Period Giffnock House. It was to be designed around the style of their bed which had been built from a combination of Oak, Sapele and Walnut.
The Wardrobe doors were built using a Solid Oak frame which surrounded the Sapele slip panels. Of upmost importance was that all of the grain pattern in the panels should converge in a diagonal pattern towards the centre of the door.
The Centre point of the wardrobes was a dividing panel which we made from a Walnut centre bordered by Oak. We stained the Walnut down from its natural colour with a dye and the contrast with the Oak was quite something.
Internally we fitted the wardrobe out with sliding shoe racks, wire baskets and purpose made Sapele Drawers. Angus and Angela provided the finishing touches with their choice of handles.
Thanks very much to both Angus and Angela for appointing us to this project. It was certainly unique and we hope you are both happy with it.
