This neat & versatile little Oak chest has been wax finished. It’ll sit beautifully as a coffee table or a hallway or porch tidy with seating for changing shoes, with a tweed effect finish inside.
Mike Newman is the man behind ‘Gonnifs’. Mike says” I retired at 60 and built a workshop for wood turning and general joinery. More recently I’ve been producing quirky and rustic pieces like hobbit boxes, platters and like to use local timber that I have planked and seasoned myself. My trade name of ‘Gonnifs’ came from my beachcombing days where my ‘finds’ would be Gonnif I hadn’t picked them up! I can turn my hand to all kinds of wood and started doing this for enjoyment but have been successfully selling these small items over the last couple of years and now include jewellery boxes and useful chests for storage etc.”
