Friday 5 selection – 20/5/2022

1. Cabinet in British ash by Charlie (Charlotte Gardner) – @ccrispdesign – made as her final piece while studying at Rowden Atelier Woodworking School. The drawer features hand-cut dovetails and curved drawer slips inspired by Alan Peters' design, adapted by Daren, head maker

This week's #woodworkerfriday5 selection is inspired by the work of the late, great Alan Peters OBE. From curved drawer slips inspired by his original design to a letter rack made using old stocks of Devon walnut from his collection, we hope that these pieces – which include the work of two past award winners – offer some guidance to those applying for The Alan Peters Furniture Award 2022

For those who haven't already applied, the deadline for entry has been extended to 31 August 2022 and a judging ceremony and exhibition will take place on 12 October at Axminster Tools' Nuneaton store, with first prize of a £1,000 Axminster Tools voucher up for grabs plus an array of others.
