Cromer Pier Coffee Table with shelf
Cromer Pier coffee table. Made from planks from Cromer Pier in Norfolk, which were being replaced by contractors. Luckily, Alexandra Bone salvaged 11 planks. She posted on Twitter asking if anyone knew a carpenter, and a friend of mine saw the post and introduced us. Wood was beautifully weathered but covered in algae and took some considerable cleaning and sanding, but the aim was to not remove too much character from the wood. Screw heads were retained in the wood.
Stained in a dark teak/oak/white spirit mixture to bring out the grain, finished with clear Briwax. Sold on commission
