Chaplaincy Tables


This was a commission for the Chaplaincy Centre at the Borders General Hospital near Melrose. It is a beautiful semi-circular room with large glass windows looking onto an inner courtyard pond. It is a special space within the hospital which is used by lots of different groups as well as for religious and spiritual services.

The larger table was to be used for meetings and also as an Altar table during services. The smaller table was also to be multifunctional but primarily designed as a Credence table to be used alongside the Altar table for services. I used some stunning rippled Ash for both tables and built the curved frames with very strong pegged tenons and cross-halving joints.
