Here you can see Brumble modelling the kurfed dog bed made out of locally sourced Sussex Ash. Kurfing is using just one piece of wood. The dog beds have a sturdy ply wood floor raised up off the floor to allow air to circulate and are available in ash and oak.
The beds are finished in an attractive durable hard wax oil creating a winning combination with local ash and oak. This Dog Bed can be made in a variety of colours and timbers. By dying the wood we have kept the grain of the Ash visible.
Medium -925 x 670 x 185 mm, suitable for collies, Labradors and other similar sized dogs
Small – 670 x 525 x 165 mm, suitable for any dog up to and including a cocker spaniel
Sadly the cushion is not included. But being the clever people that we are the Joules dog cushions are designed to fit inside our dog beds other cushions are likely to fit as well. Each bed is made bespoke so sizes might vary slightly.
This bed is a simple design made from English Oak. The bed has been designed in a way that means it comes apart into small pieces so it can be taken up spiral stair cases and can be easily assembled again once in position. The height of the mattress is low which enables the bed to be used in low or angled ceiling rooms. This helps to reduce the chances of banging your head.
This piece was designed for the New Forest Trust Fine Crafted Wood Competition. The brief was to create an out standing piece of furniture. I was experimenting with multiple thin strips of MDF and bending them in my hands then the lowest strip slipped down creating a space. After a a lot of models, I had the rough idea of what I wanted to create. I tapered and angled the legs as this made the piece visually lighter and stronger. The seat frame was a result of not wanting a support at the base of the legs as I felt this broke up the sweeping lines of the piece. I won the People’s Choice Award at the New Forest Show for this bench.
