I made this serving hatch for a client in 2008, they were very much into Charles Rennie Mackintosh and wanted a carving of his famous rose. I sourced a fantastic plank of quarter sawn oak and produced these doors. The photo is recent March 2019.
The clients provided a kitchen door knob with the Mackintosh rose on, which I suspended in silicone rubber and then cast these insets for the corners and middle of the architrave.
Recently I was asked to make a cabinet to compliment the hatch on the kitchen side, the budget was not enough to cover any carving so I made a simpler styles that still has a similar theme, again they were very lucky as I came across some beautiful figured quarter sawn oak again.
