A taste of success
Dougal Black Carpentry once again tastes success with this latest unique furniture project!
"It has been a privilege to work with a local distillery on the centrepiece of their whisky tasting experience" says Dougal, proudly standing beside his latest creation. Dougal and his wife Jane worked together on the unique design of this tasting table, using the elements of oak and iron, combined with the deconstructed and re-imagined shapes to be found in a traditional whisky cask.
The result is a heavy and imposing part-circular table-top on seven tall legs joined with an iron hoop, allowing up to ten people to gather around it for whisky-tasting experiences.
"I derive great encouragement from a commission like this - it displays a continuing trust in the combination of bespoke design and hand-crafting" says Dougal, "I often hear my customers say they much prefer to be involved in the process, rather than being dictated to by what's available. This ensures the product then meets their needs exactly."
Time for a taste of the good stuff!
Dear Dougal, having now used the desk for a few weeks we can confirm that it is a real pleasure to use and very conducive to study and to writing. Thank you so much for putting so much thought and skill into making it.
