The new console table by RJ Scott. Exhibiting at Leeds college of art.

Stack lamination. The 2 inch thick ash has been glue and now being scupted with a arbortech. A very dusty job so use a good dust mask

A free bent lamination of veneers is a difficult process. The main issues are 1. curing time of the glue. Epoxy resin is the best for this and is the strongest. There are certain types of epoxy resins that take a long time (approx 60 - 90mins) to cure so it gives you much more time to work the lamination compared to other glues.  2 the quality of the clamps. the clamps above are made with steel and are lined with stripes of cork to protect the laminates from the crushing effects of the clamps. 3 the amount of clamps. the more the better to remove any gaps that will open up without any pressure. 4. Patience. the process it repetitive and needs a lot of attention to detail. Practice makes perfect. A free bent lamination of veneers is a difficult process.

first year projects

The Saxon was designed for a client and now has its home at Thorp Perrow Arbetoreum, Harrogate. The waney edged table top had bee made from 2inch thick English Oak and the legs made from 3 inch thick catpaw Oak. The frame work is made from steel. The fine details of the table are the Bronze leaves that have been inlayed in the table. I cast 3 Oak leaves and a Sycamore leaf to adorn the surface of the table. there are two draws at either side of the table with beautiful wanet edged drawer fronts. The table has been located in the bothy with previous work of students.
