Providence_work_table

The dimension of this work table are as follows:

The tongue & grooved lower shelf crafted from old flooring & is 20 cm off the floor.

It is anchored together with proper industrial bolts and steel plates. We think it is an example of a late 18th century English Country workshop table: it had a very ancient vice attached, and is made from local timbers: Elm, Ash and Oak. It was common to make these from timbers that were to hand in the countryside.

It’s “industry” heavy (at 60 kilos+) and would suit being a kitchen work table. We have thoroughly scrubbed it from top to tail, filling old bolt holes with dowels, levelled the legs so it sits true. Finished with a light waxing it wears its age with pride & character. You just cannot fake patina like this.
It can be seen at our shop.

Larder Cupboard – Farrow & Ball, Ammonite

Providence_Larder_Ammonite

This compact larder cupboard is painted in Farrow and Ball Ammonite, estate eggshell. Inside it has a series of adjustable shelves with the drawer below. Usually 1m w x 45cm d x 1.8m we can stretch the size a bit as required. These black metal shaker knobs are a fantastic version of the wooden originals we import from New England. that Sometimes they are used as general storage cupboards : files, toys, bike helmets etc. Any questions on this and other cabinets please email workshop@providenceuk.com for a prompt response.

It was also fitted with “soft close runners”.
This an an option that is especially useful if
the contents of the drawers are going to be heavy.

A Providence Kitchen

At Providence we sometimes make a bespoke kitchen.
In the hurley burley of making, installing and completing we don’t always get to photograph them;
below is the exception to the rule
– we photographed.

As part of this project we also made a dining table and a side table.
Both pieces had oak tops that were stained to a deep oak colour.
