This was one of my favourite pieces by Adrian McCurdy, it was a small piece and had a certain rightness.
It was hand hewn and still bore the tool marks of the adze.
This sideboard came from the Barnsley Workshops and was a magnificent piece. The oak and brown oak were feathered in layers so that when the shaping was done it produced this unusual striped effect. The drawers fitted absolutely perfectly with no wobble detectable at all. Some of the other makers on show had drawers which fell a long way short of this perfection, which was a shame. The compound curves fitted perfectly and must have been a real challenge. This piece was on sale for £78,000 and had already sold!
