Completed Pieces and Bespoke Items

7″ X 5″ American white oak fossil plinth

“I asked Jim to create a wooden mount for a large fossil. It took him a couple of days and the result was perfect. I cannot recommend Against the Grain high enough. Not only do they sell beautiful items Jim has crafted but the bespoke service is second to none.”

European Oak Live Edged Shelf

I’ve always wanted to make a feature of the space between the fire place and wall in our living room and what better excuse then to make a live edge shelf made from beautiful European Oak.

 Finished with Danish oil and Osmo polymer wax.




Half Shelf

European Oak live edged half shelf with 5 double hooks.

Bightened up a boring part of the wall with this stunning shelf – Length 85cm with 5 double hoooks, finished with Danish oil and wax polish.


Stunning and unique handmade coffee table incorporating traditional joints.  

Made for my Father for a ‘big’ Birthday.  Finished with Yatch varnish.
