Radiator Cabinet

Customer commissioned me to construct a cabinet to hide an unsightly radiator (& to increase its efficiency by redirecting heat into the room instead of up the wall !) Constructed of tulip wood with English oak top using traditional joinery throughout.

The cabinet had to fitted around existing pipework & could not,therefore,be free-standing, but still needed to have the facility of easy removal to expose the radiator for cleaning/servicing

Right hand side.

Detail of locating dowel (one each side), this enables the entire cabinet (apart from the permanently fixed wall uprights) to be removed from the wall. This was achieved using dry mortices , the top being laminated to prevent splitting over time by repeated removal & replacement of the cabinet over the years
