We design and make Cabinet commissions for clients in Greater London and the Home Counties, and would be delighted to discuss your requirements.

You would always be welcome at the workshop to see your project in progress.

We take our inspiration from the Shaker style; simplicity, functionality and timeless design.

We create furniture both in the Traditional Shaker style, or through the addition of curves, a more Contemporary look.

In both cases, the design theme is based on balanced proportions and meticulous attention to detail.

We believe in letting the woods speak for themselves and take pride in the time consuming process of wood selection, placement and matching of grain and colour to further enhance the beauty of what we have created.

The end result is timeless.

Side Stand and Mirror, made from Black Walnut

Our client commissioned a Statement piece for the hallway which also needed to be functional. In choosing the timber we picked up on an inlay detail in the hardwood floor. Made in the Shaker style from Black Walnut with English Oak drawer sides and dovetail construction throughout. A matching wall-mounted mirror was also made.

Every commission is different, but broadly speaking the working process follows as such:

We discuss your needs and establish timescale and budget for the Cabinet

Initial meeting; working with you to flesh out ideas, materials and design requirements

Conceptual design(s) proposal and rough costings presented back in person or via email/post.

Designs approved and work commissioned (initial payment required, percentage variable to project scale)

Your project will then be hand-built and installed with the care and attention to detail that Shaker Maker are known for.

Once installed, balance payable in full.

Radial Wall Clock, made from Pippy Oak

This clock has become a popular piece with many variations being commissioned. The Quartz movement ensures accuracy, and the classic clock face and brick-type lamination detail make this clock a striking addition to both contemporary and traditional interiors. Available in any hardwood, and two sizes: 18" or 12" diameter clock face.

Low Table, made from Spalted Beech

The wood itself was the starting point for this project. We were lucky enough to acquire a small log of highly figured English Spalted Beech. The size of the log dictated the project size, therefore a Low Table was a natural choice. The design is very simple, so as not to detract from the beauty of the wood. The table has been hand-veneered and sprayed with a water-based lacquer to preserve the natural colour and add a soft sheen.

Long Case Clock, made from Black Walnut

The client came to us with a much loved heirloom that despite needing a new case, was keeping good time. They were keen to contemporise the look of the clock to ease it into it's current surroundings. This was achieved by introducing curves to the new case, whilst retaining the existing cases' proportions. To preserve the clean look, we also integrated a secret door-opener to the front panel.

Dining Table, made from Walnut and Maple

This versatile table is made with a Black Walnut top and stack-laminated maple legs resulting in an extremely stable construction. However, the design still retains a visual lightness allowing it to work well even in a modest space. With the placement of a leg at each corner, even though the table is only 4 foot long, it can seat up to six people and nobody has to “straddle a leg”.

Bed and Side Tables, made from Black Cherry

Practical design in the New England style was the brief on this project. The client had limited floor space but wanted the convenience of tables to either side of the bed. We adapted an existing full-bed design and created matching wall-mounted side tables to fully utilise the available space. The Black Cherry was selected in keeping with the client's love of New England style and to add warmth to a neutral room pallet.
