Joining the community

Named after a small island just off the North Norfolk coast, the Scolt Head is a charming community pub, which is held in high regard by the locals for its excellent food, extra circular activates such as swing dancing, darts, and jazz, and the friendly staff.

 

The requirements

In 2006 the establishment came under new management and required a few modifications and so called upon the joinery to assist with designing, building, installing the new bespoke doors for the side entrance of the pub.

Made to match

The doors were designed to match the existing pub doors, using a meranti timber and clear finish. To add a little character to the door we cut in a curved mid rail.

We hope that you enjoyed reading about this delightful project and if you have any similar joinery requirements, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Our approach

Being a residential project, we knew that we would need to work as quickly as possible so as not to disrupt the family’s day-too-day home life.

From start to finish the duration of the project lasted eight weeks. Being a compact space we knew that we would need think about designing clever storage solutions. This would help keep clutter to a minimum and to help make the most of the space and create the illusion of a large bright space.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Client: The Great Northern Railway Tavern
Project type: Hospitality joinery – beer servers
Joinery requirements: Redesigning and producing beer servers 
Location: North London

The client

Recently, we were tasked by The Great Northern Railway Tavern to redesign their beer holders, and being fanatical about beer we jumped at the chance. Their existing holders were made with oak which darkens and rots over time when exposed to moisture and they were in desperate need of replacements.

Choosing the materials

When taking into consideration the elements that the servers were going to be exposed to we wanted to ensure that the server would be able to withstand moisture and heavy-duty use.

TWENTY TWENTYONE

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Client: TwentyTwentyone/Childsply chair
Designer: Robin Day
Project type: Supply and demand
Joinery requirements: Custom wood chairs for mass production
Address: London

The client

Due to a lack of well-designed furniture TwentyTwentyone (TTO) felt that it was important to delve into this sector and create a custom made chair with a simple design that could be mass produced efficiently using only a single sheet of plywood. After much planning project Childsply was born, to highlight the gap in the market.

Custom-made-children's-chair
Polypropylene-stacking-chair---Robin-Day

Do these custom wood chairs look familiar?

If you’re wondering where you might have seen this chair before, you’ve got it. It is of course from the 1999 Robin Day, The Childsply exhibition. Robin Day is renowned for many of his designs but is perhaps most well known for his Polypropylene stacking chairs that fills schools and hospitals up and down the country. At the time this was seen as an ingenious invention and was made to mass production.

Original design

The original design for the chair was leased to TTO by the Robin Day trust, with incredibly strict terms, stipulating that the design needed to be replicated exactly, right down to the very last detail with no deviation.

Robin-Day-Childsply-wooden-chair

A spanner in the woodworks

Despite being a simple design and cutting pattern the project proved to be more complex than first anticipated, and so the design team called upon the assistance of the Joinery and commissioned us to produce an initial batch of 50 chairs, solely for internal use, but with a view to mass produce the custom wood chairs in the UK.

Knowing that The Child’s Ply Chair had to be cut from only one sheet, leaving very little waste. Falkus Joinery gathered their best joiners and produced an assembly line production method that allowed us to create 50 chairs in batch at one time.

Although this was a small requirement, there was a lot of thought and skill that went into the production and the clients were pleased with the results.

WAWA ROCKING CHAIR

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Client: WAWA
Designer: Richard Ward
Project type: Custom made furniture | Mass production
Joinery requirements: Rocking chairs 
Address: 1 Ezra St, London E2 7RH

The client

WAWA is a high-end bespoke sofa and chair manufacturer, who work with a mix of both modern and traditional materials. Each piece is uniquely tailored to complement their clients’ individual style and flair.

When WAWA launched their modern folding rocking chair design they struggled to find a manufacturer that could mass produce this complicated design efficiently and affordably.

Joinery requirements

It was then that WAWA approached the Joinery and tasked them with replicating their iconic rocking chair. So using the designer’s original drawings we hit the workshop and began works on replicating the existing chair.

We applied modern joinery techniques by moving all machining to the CNC machine to maximise the production. This also allowed Falkus Joinery to add the makers mark to each chair.

Design

The design itself didn’t require any altering which is unusual for such a complicated design. When working with chairs we often come across common design flaws but on this occasion, nothing needed to be altered which is a testament to its design.

Known for its robust yet warm qualities, we agreed that the American Beech would be an ideal timber for this project as it provides both quality and longevity for the user.

The results

for the finish, we used a specialist one cost system called Monocoat from Rubio. This is a wood protection system that works on a molecular level.

Both client and joiner we’re satisfied with the end product and as a result, we have continued to enjoy a healthy working relationship and continue to manufacture their chairs.

The client was so happy with the end results that they even produced this video to document the process.

The client

Hidden between the trees of a heavily wooded site on the Esher Common, stands the naturalistic yet eye-catching house of the Gwynne family, lovingly named the Homewood. Constructed in 1938, this iconic house is famed not only for its inhabitants but also for its breathtaking woodland garden and striking design. Throughout the seasons the gardens display a neverending wave of colours which has drawn in and delighted the public over the years.

The process

During the off-season, the Natural Trust approached the Joinery via a recommendation, in 2001, and asked them to assist in the restoration of the fitted furniture and the reconstruction of the master bedroom along with a hand full of additional bespoke joinery items.

Working from original drawings and pictures, sourced directly from the RIBA Library, the team were thrilled to have the opportunity to work on such an iconic project that they sharpened their chisels and go to work.

Although the specification was varied, the project included birch ply panels and tambour door wardrobes that acted as room dividers. Patrick Gwynne was heavily involved throughout the projects and hand selected the veneers to match the original joinery that had been removed in the years following the original sale.

Project type: custom made wood furniture – supply and fit 
Joinery requirements: building additional desk, storage and seating units
Address: 42 Gloucester Crescent, NW1 7PE

The client

Max Fordham is a sustainable environmental engineering practice, who specialize in mechanical engineering, environmental design and building physics. Due to the rapid growth of the company, the team were in need of additional storage units and desk space and commissioned the manufacture of custom made wood furniture. 

Due to our central London location we were able to manufacture and build this custom made unit and deliver it within four weeks. 

Our process

Working from a combination of architect’s drawing and sketch up model supplied by the client the joinery successfully completed two phases of the Max Fordham fit out. The workshop produced storage units, desks, as well as the upholstered reception bench with a display shelving.  Through this project we used a combination of veneered American white Oak MDF and solid American oak.

The layout

The office space started directly behind this reception bench, following the entire perimeter of the old piano factory, and the upholstered padded back and insulated cavity also acted as a sound baffle to mitigate the associated noise of a large rotunda building. The reception desk was designed to divide the open circular layout of the building into a clear reception area.
