"A fantastic opportunity to flex my imagination with an unusual commission from a client to 'wow' his would be wife with a bespoke engagement ring box fashioned from a combination of Ziricote and Maple solid timbers. What made this commission particularly unusual was that the ring itself was handcarved, over three days, from a solid piece of Wenge, a West African hardwood. The final flourish was to hand carve the initials of the recpient of the box and inlay them to the base. The whole project was made without any cost constraints over 4 weeks and featured Brusso Ironmongery, L.E.D lights and 20 coats of polish/wax applied by hand."
Suffice to say my client is now married!
After this commission was built I've now decided to make a limited run of boxes made from a combination of Santos Rosewood and Canadian Maple with the addition of housing a SanDisk Wireless Media Drive to archive all of ones photos and videos of the story of ones marriage as an heirloom piece to give to your children to enjoy!
"Nicholas Jones is a talented and experienced craftsman who made a substantial and varied amount of bespoke cabinetry for us when we recently moved into a newly built flat.
The major items he made for us were a wall mounted display unit with individual compartments that were each illuminated by dimmable LED lights, a floor standing unit with a retractable housing for the television, storage and built in LED lighting, two bedside tables and two mirrored bathroom cabinets and a vanity unit. He also built a rack to display patchwork quilts, an elegant frame for a mirror and installed lighting in the glass fronted top of a secretaire.
We enjoyed participating with him in the design of these objects and found him an excellent communicator and a joy to work with. The standard of finish of all his work is outstanding and he is ingenious in finding solutions to practical problems of design and execution.
We are delighted with his work and unreservedly recommend Nicholas to anybody who wants quality, imaginative bespoke cabinetry."
