Circa late 1980s

A superb matched pair of  bedside  or side cabinets by ex Mouseman craftsman 'Oakleafman' David Langstaff.  Solid oak panelling throughout with typical adzing to the top and door panels.  David's trademark oakleaf is carved into the tops of each cabinet. Made as a matched pair, one door is hinged to the left the other to the right. The cabinet interiors are in pristine condition and feature 3 removeable and fully height adjustable oak shelves. Finished in a wonderful waxed golden honey colour. The only evidence of usage by the original Easingwold owners is some minor drip staining to the rear panels on one of the cabinets which is shown in the image gallery below.

David worked at Robert Thompson's from 1965 before setting up Oak Leaf Furniture in 1986 in Easingwold.

Size: 45.5(w) x 29.5(d) x 69(h) cm each.

With prices  for bedside cabinets from David and similar Yorkshire craftsmen now £ 850 - £ 900 each and the Mouseman cabinet currently £ 1,855  these are very attractively priced at:

£ 830 pair

Lovely letter rack by  the ex Mouseman craftsman David Langstaff who has been working independently in Easingwold since 1986. Crafted  and hand tooled from a single block of  high quality quater sawn oak  which highlights the golden medullary rays in the oak with adzing all over except the base. Even the cut-out for the letters is hand tooled and his trademark oakleaf is carved in relief to the  front. In perfect condition with no damage or water splashing and a lovely warm mellow honey colour.
