Pam is my favourite customer in our little shop. She is over 80 and walks down almost daily to see what's new and to invite us round for coffee.
At one of these coffee time visits to her house, we sat in the lounge and she showed me a picture in the Devon Homes magazine of a lovely Shaker style coffee table she loved. "This is what I want " she said "can you make me one", I couldn't say no!
With detailed instructions as to the height (34cm), and it must be square (38cm), and coloured creamy white with a highly polished oak coloured top. I set about making it and the pictures are the result.
The painted finish is distressed and shows the grain patterns through the paintwork. The whole thing feels solid and heavy, each joint glued and nailed for extra strength.
