Sorry if we’ve been a bit quiet of late. Things are just  very busy here at the moment since we’re well and truly in to our August batch of Little John’s. Once again it’s a nice change of pace and after a long time spent on the joinery Richard should be starting to bring some benches together very soon. Little john baseThere are a few little alternations to the bench this time around. Nothing major but we noticed that we had a little extra material on the rough sawn timbers so we’ve managed to increase both the legs and the rails. This is going to make things look nice and stocky.
The base has also been laid out so that it can easily accept a shelf, which is something we can offer as an extra or which you might like to make and fit in yourself.
Finally there’s another nice upgrade which we’ll be able to show you with photos – I’ll keep you updated over the coming week.

The second part of our Wall Cupboard video is almost complete and should (hopefully) be up and ready to watch from tomorrow. If you haven’t seen Part One yet then don’t forget to catch up first.
