This Oak wheel house was made traditionally using mortice/tenon joints, solid shaped oak beams and Fir Tongue and groove for the roof, and will also have bronze port holes . It is to be fitted to a square rigged Tall Ship  (‘Kaskelot’) and will replace the existing one which is being scrapped. The ship has been undergoing a very large restoration/refit.

As part of the job we were also asked to make this high quality traditional companion way with sliding hatch and lockers. Fitted above galley and heads, it will help ventilation and provide access down below.

Approximately 4 tons of air dried European oak were used to manufacture those 2 pieces of naval joinery.

Those hardwood casement windows are made traditionally to the highest standards. Double glazed,  they comply with building regulations and match the existing windows. They will be stained and fitted to a cottage’s extension.

Yachts hatches and joinery

Pine shelves

Some Yellow pine shelves were added to this living room to create books and artifacts storage as well as a tv/dvd player unit matching the shelves. The brackets are concealed and the finish   is clear lacquer to retain the beauty and color of this wood.

Curved Chestnut Staircase

This custom made staircase was designed and created in close collaboration with the customers. Its shape represents the Spiral of Infinity, it was made to fit the entrance hallway of a beautifully restored farm house. Crafted with the best quality chestnut, full width boards were used for the treads, with cut string and dissymmetric shaped handrail.

The bottom step often referred as the bullnose step is curved into an existing step, and house the newel post with hand carved volute on top.

The staircase is finished using a natural oil/wax which retains the original colour of the wood whilst being hard wearing and easy to clean and maintain.

It is made of Prime quality European oak, with full width solid treads and strings. The handrail ‘scroll’ is hand carved.The upper flight is built with open risers  to allow passage for the light from the half landing window.

Classic Wooden motor launch

One of the projects on which we have been working  is ‘Monkswood’,  a classic motor launch, built in Cornwall over 100 years ago. She is clinker built using the finest materials available in those days: Honduras or brazilian mahogany planking on steamed oak frames, copper riveted.

Originally built as a pleasure craft, she has been use as a ‘work boat’ for several decades and still is nowadays.

This refit/restoration, is the biggest she’s had for 20 years and has brought this amazing boat back to life , and work, for many more years to come.

‘Monkswood’ is often visible in Mylor Yacht Harbour as this is where it is based.

Mylor Rigging owns her and uses her on a daily basis as a workhorse.

This year she benefited from a new engine box and engine control box as well as a couple of coats of varnish and freshly painted topsides.

Modern Staircase

This staircase is made using prime grade European oak. It was constructed to suit its modern surroundings, and provides access to the 1st floor of a grand design house recently refurbished to the highest standards.

The design and construction were discussed with the customer to meet its requirements.

It is to be fitted with a glass/stainless balustrade.

It will last for a life time and meets all building regulations.


This Oak gazebo was built using prime grade oak. It was designed in close collaboration with the customer to meet all of his requirements.

It provides a beautiful feature to the garden but also is an extraordinary place to come for a peaceful rest and a ‘Day dream’.
