A celebration of British hardwoods at Heal's

Watch a woodsman at work in Heal’s windows when young designer-maker Sebastian Cox crafts his new five-drawer tallboy.
“I want to show off the great choice of timbers here in Britain,” says Cox, who prides himself on his fine dovetails.
 
The tallboy is available in 10 British hardwoods — ash, oak, chestnut, beech, sycamore, London plane, walnut, cherry, elm and hazel.
 
He harvests the coppiced hazel himself from a wood in Kent. Customers can order chests of drawers in any assortment of the timbers on view.
 
  • March 15, 16, 22 and 23 at Heal’s, 196 Tottenham Court Road, W1 (020 7636 1666; heals.co.uk)
