Bakers of Danbury’s onsite joinery workshop carries out traditional wood carving among many other skilled joinery services. Our bench joiner and wood carver, Norman Valentine hand carved a number of crocus detail for the reordering project at St Mary the Virgin, Saffron Walden, Essex.
The church reordering project involved Bakers’ joinery workshop manufacturing and installing an English Oak bespoke DDA and Dementia friendly wc, storage cupboards, children’s library and pew storage area, for which they hand carved a crocus detail to the top of every post installed. The reordering project was very detailed and complex with many hand carved designs.
