When I was discussing the commission with the clients they mentioned that they loved the furniture within Reedham church, and would like me to see it. I replied that I didn’t need to see it because I had made most of it when I worked for John Barnard. So with the clients suitably impressed I asked if they would like me to highlight the joinery on the bed with Ebony accents, a dowel here, an inlay there….. yes please they replied. We then discussed the main timber for the piece, they mentioned that they didn’t want anything dark, and were seeking a very light timber. Step forward Mr Sycamore, this is about the palest timber native to this country, and can be very attractive when figured like above in the panel on the headboard.
