Vintage work table


The dimension of this work table are as follows:
Height 76.5cm x Width 123cm x 45.5cm deep. Surface & legs made from heavy 8.5cm stock.
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


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 for a prompt response.

Freestanding Larder Cabinet

Here is a larder cabinet that we made in a bespoke size for a customer.
It’s painted in Farrow & Ball Estate eggshell, No 241 Skimming stone.
The internal shelves are adjustable.
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.



Plate rack over the sink.




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.


This is a detail of the side table that we made.
