Hello all!

It’s with great pleasure that we can finally announce a partnership between Revive Joinery and the Merrell footwear company.

Over the upcoming weeks, we’ll be redesigning their London office in the theme of a cobbler’s workshop, so keep your eyes peeled for sneak peaks!


It’s always lovely to see a commission go into a home where it’ll be enjoyed for years to come. We think you’ll agree our reclaimed wood wine rack makes a great addition to our customer’s living room!

This specific wine rack was sourced from a property in Hove that’s over 140 years old, meaning the wood itself is more than likely over 200 years! That’s quite an impressive piece of history to have in your home and even better that it’s on display in such a lovely location.


We’re delighted to announce that we’ve moved into a new workshop in central Hove!

Our new address is:

2 Landsdowne Mews, Farm Road, Hove.

Once we’ve given the place some serious tlc, we’d love to see you all down there.


We’re absolutely chuffed to announce that we have been awarded a “Small Business Sunday” award from Theo Paphitis himself!

This has given us the real boost that we needed to take Revive Joinery to the next level, something we’ll be cherishing for a long time to come.

If you’re part of the #SBS family, we’d love to hear from you.

 

Ed & Jon.



We’re over the moon to announce that super glam magazine British GQ have featured us in their “Innovation Decoration” section. We’re in total shock and a swift pint may be required to let this sink in (obviously after work *ahem*).

 

Wow!


We’re very happy to announce that Revive Joinery is growing! Jon Neal officially joins the RJ family, so we’re really looking forward to creating even more exciting and beautiful products with the same high-end standards.

Here’s a little about Jon…

 

Jonathan Neal grew up just outside of Brighton in the town of Lewes, East Sussex.  From a young age, sport, especially football, was his main passion and led him to play around the country, in Europe and even to study in America.  In 2005, Jonathan graduated with a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice and went on to join the British Army and attend the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Since then he has worked in a number of different roles from security advisor to Specialist Operations, Counter Terrorism Command to coordinating the support of wounded, injured and sick service personnel and their families for one of the largest military charities in the UK.

Jonathan has always had a creative passion to everything he has done, turning ideas into reality and working hard to make sure even the smallest opportunities are realised. During the summer of London 2012, Jonathan led a project which saw over 30 wounded servicemen and women take on key roles in the closing ceremony of the Paralympics resulting in over £4 Million of advertising for the charity Help for Heroes.

This passion has led Jonathan to use woodwork and carpentry as a tool for not only designing and creating ideas but also building bespoke pieces for family and friends.  Having known Ed for many years, the opportunity to join him in taking Revive Joinery forward is a challenge he is hugely looking forward to and one that will be unparalleled to anything before.

 

Exciting times ahead I think you’ll agree!


Over the last week or so, I’ve been working at a lovely new pub in Hove. It goes by the name “Bottom’s Rest”, a reference to Shakespeare’s character in Mid Summer Night’s Dream. It’s been a fantastic job, so I thought I’d share a few snaps from the project.

Enjoy!

And so the work begins…



Laying out the main table.



It’s the little details in our work that set it apart.



We love the end finish on the main dining table!



Restoring some of the table tops.



And some more…



Phew! That was tiring, but worth it!



Laying out some of the pipe fittings.



Fixing the shelves in place.



The end result.



Hopefully you enjoy it is much as I did making it!

 


Here’s a fantastic article with examples of houses that have been built with the goal of providing a simpler way of living. Each house has been created using reclaimed or sustainable materials, such as shipping containers, industrial wood scraps or sustainable materials that conventional construction bypasses.

I think you’ll agree this is a really interesting read, so click the link and begin drooling over the gorgeous creations.
