Handmade Radiator Cabinets
Handmade Radiator Covers of excellent quality


Handmade Bespoke Radiator Cabinet Intricate Metalwork grill to the front of the radiator cover Close up of the Quilted Maple timber used Detailed view of the 'book-matched' effect, the sign of  true Cabinet Makers and Craftsmen

Our radiator covers are created in the form of genuine pieces of furniture. Hand-made from stable laminate board and traditionally hand veneered using reversible animal glues and interesting exotic timbers.
This example of a Biedermeier style Radiator Cabinet has been veneered in quilted Maple; the veneer is initially soaked in order to become supple, and laid onto the base wood with the use of a veneering hammer. The cabinet body is vented to the top with the veneer being book-matched for effect. The 3 facing edges are veneered with vertical grain to an apron divided by ebonised Mahogany mouldings to a panel of horizontal veneer.

The faux doors are created from single sections of timber for stability and the illusion of a pair of doors has been created with the laying of the veneers to simulate a mortise and tennon appearance. Each door has been trimmed with ebonised Mahogany and fitted with elliptical brass mesh in the form of a Biedermeier chiffonier. A subtle piano hinge has been fitted to the base of the doors to enable access to the radiator within. The whole piece is supported by a deep plinth again laid on solid mahogany and ebonised in the detail.

All surfaces are decorated, the front and sides are of equal standing in quality and craftsmanship and as most radiators are placed in prominent positions in a home. Creating a piece in this manner allows it to stand alone as a beautiful piece of furniture in its own right.
