Barnsley Workshop Open Day, Saturday 3rd June.

This Saturday from 10.00 - 4.00 pm the Barnsley Workshop is having an open day. http://www.barnsley-furniture.co.uk/
This is a great opportunity to see the workshops as well as the showroom and learn something of the ethos of this world famous woodworking establishment. They take on full time apprentices as well as fee paying students so if you have an interest here then it would well worth a visit in addition to the other attractions. There are usually a few smaller reasonably priced pieces for sale in the showroom, although the rocker (above) is not one of them, price £25,000.

More reasonably priced are these iconic Barnsley tall back chairs at £1,300 each.
 This Radius Chest is a time consuming masterpiece.
 This cufflink box above is a very reasonable £445 and the breadboard below is an apprentice exercise priced at £90. It is all hand planed to exacting tolerances, I still have mine as a reminder!
 And to finish these wonderful library steps with curves everywhere, priced at £25,000 I wouldn't mind seeing these library these went to.
