" I've been lucky enough to have pieces of Hamish's work made for me over the years. From
hand made wooden utensils, to hardwood floating shelves, and my favourite piece.... An entire bathroom cabinet.
Hamish is a true craftsman. His work is an art form that is so rarely seen anymore.
I am currently building a home and look forward to seeing a lot more of Hamish's craftsmanship throughout it......."
" Having been an admirer of Hamish's wood work, I
commissioned the design and manufacture of a hall stand to be
constructed of some rough sawn Purple Heart that I had in my
possession. Other than requesting a hall stand, all the design and
composition was entrusted to Hamish.
The Hall Stand is of contemporary minimalist design with a focus on
highlighting the natural feature of the Purple Heart timber. The top
of the stand and drawer fascias are of highly figured timber and are
emphasised through the use of unfigured timber for the main
carcass and legs.
The drawers are of figured Purple Heart with concealed dovetail
joins to figured Tasmanian Oak internals. The drawer pulls are hand
carved Wenge with a rough carved finish to contrast and soften the
precision high level of finish of the hall stand.
The legs are fine Stiletto style of unfigured Purple Heart.
The finish on the hall stand is a hand rubbed satin oil that is gloss
enough to enhance the timbers figure but dull enough to remain
understated. The drawer pulls and drawer internals have no finish to
add another element of contrast to the piece.
The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is high and the
level of finish of the piece including the undersides that are not
visible unless scrutinized are flawless.
I can highly recommend Hamish for all level of design,
composition and finish for any project he is entrusted with."
