Reminiscent of a WW2 solider suffering with trench foot was this stable door when discovered on a farm in Yorkshire. After undergoing a causality evacuation to the Junk Gypsies operating theatre this soldiers time on front line duty was over. After being washed and prepped for surgery it was obvious to see that this beautiful relic was made by true craftsmen some eighty plus years ago. Individual planks of pine were measured, cut, shaped and finished by a master carpenter. A simple but exquisite lock was then crafted and positioned to finish his work. Four hand forged, folded and shaped sets of hinges were then commissioned by a black smith in order to finish their functional masterpiece.
Now in need of extensive surgery we set about fixing him up. After many, many, many hours in theatre we managed to save all of his enduring features. Now immortalised under a ten millimetre sheet of toughened glass this solider wears all his battle scars with the same pride as his hand calved lock and forged hinged medals obtained for his long and distinguished service. Both blacksmith and carpenter of the same period once crafted the scaffold trestles now repurposed for the legs of this enigmatic piece in order for this solider’s new service. Serving as a constant reminder that a family that eats together stays together. May you eat, drink and laugh for many years in his company.
