This oak toy box was made to look rustic as if it had already seen a good few years use, to give it that treasured,  handed down look, which is exactly what they plan to do with this toy chest when the time comes.
After searching around for a toy box for our daughter, we realised we wanted something unique. Based in Hertford, Hertfordshire, Chapman Bespoke Woodwork designs and creates tailor-made furniture for all your needs. From an idea in your head, to recreate a piece of furniture from your childhood or copy an existing piece or even something you have seen in a magazine, Chapman Bespoke Woodwork will craft you a stunning piece of workmanship that is not only unique to you but will be something admired by others. This table is somewhat over engineered which is only really a problem if you stub your toe on the thing or are trying to move house, it never fails to gain comment from the removalists when they pick it up.
If I were to make one again I think I wou;d reduce the depth of the side rails as somtimes I think they spoil the proportions a bit, but everyone else seems to like it.
I made the table about 4 years ago and inspite of being moved from a hot dry climate to a cold wet one, it shows no sign of distortion or cracking.
Unfortunatly the table must have been dropped while in transit from Australia to the UK as there is a bit of a nibble into the corner of one leg, (must fix that) but it's really not too bad. I finished it with one very light coat of polyurethane followed by many coats of furniture wax paste. As before the lid and base of the box were cut first, but before the inner profile was cut a slice was taken for the back of the boat to enable square corners at the rear. The outside profile was cut to give an even wall thickness and then the lid was added and the same profile traced. Before the superstructure was glued in place the lid was cut at an angle so it narrowed towards the stern. The lightweight slide-in style Lithium-Ion batteries hold their charge for longer, which means there is no discernible loss of performance throughout the battery charge. Join the artist of the Sea Flora exhibition, Sara Dodd and RBGE Plant Specimen Preparer, Kate Eden, for a conversation exploring the rich history of seaweed collecting in Scotland and abroad.
3pm, Friday 13 June, Patrick Geddes Room, John Hope Gateway, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
Another favourite of mine is ‘Alchemy II’ made by members of the textile studio at Garvald.  The shadow cast by the felted balls of naturally died wool in the sun is particularly striking in the early morning. Garvald Edinburgh is a Scottish Charity that offers creative opportunities and support for people with learning disabilities.
What is Botanics Stories?Botanics Stories is an on-line resource offered by The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Not strictly a project from the workshop because it was built outside, but there are few points worth mentioning if you would like to build something similar. There are literally hundreds of plans and ideas available, so this is just one suggested design.
The garden didn't have a tree large enough to accommodate a real tree house so this design was more a house on stilts.
The height of the main platform was 1250mm so that the area underneath could be used for storage or as an extra play area.
The floor plan was a 1200mm square with an open landing to one side to allow access via the stairs.
The main structure was supported on 4 legs (2" x 4"), which were diagonally braced underneath for rigidity.
The door on the outside was a late addition as the customer decided that a slide should be added. So to correct this, the 30mm just removed from the bottom, was divided by the 8 treads and this number was added onto each riser height. The more impressed you are with our products and services, the more likely you will recommend us to schools, colleges and training centres. It's one metre square and does dominate a room somewhat but it is marvelous for reading a newspaper on while still having plenty of room for other things.
Jarrah is a hard Western Australian wood with a rich dark red colour that has been compared to mahogany. I always joke that if there's an air raid I'm going underneath it as I am sure a house could fall on the thing and it will still be standing.
The batteries also contain unique protection circuitry to prevent damage from overloading, overcharging and high discharging; this gives Hitachi Lithium-Ion batteries up to 260% longer service life than similar batteries. If a battery is not used, the battery charge will drop by only 5% in 40 days; this means less energy is required to recharge it.
While this drill is on the expensive side in this instance you are getting what you pay for. Becoming a popular pastime at the beginning of the nineteenth century, seaweed collecting has been largely forgotten since enthusiastic Victorians painstakingly collected, dried and mounted specimens into decorative scrapbooks. A focus on art and craft offers a wide range of possibilities for people to express creativity and be connected to nature. It was designed to fit in a corner of the garden and to make the best use of some old decking timber which was available.
This photo also shows a little bench seat underneath which was added to brace the legs and to use up the decking timber. However once the treads were added (30mm thick in this case), the bottom step ended up larger than the others.
So all the notches were 160mm except the bottom one which was reduced to 135mm to make the steps even.
Owners are proud of their cars but this is often difficult to convey to other enthusiasts who have never heard of Crossley, much less the model: Regis. It has a lip added to the top edge as the client intends to add the use of a foam cushion and use this box as a seat as their  child gets older. Referencing examples from the RBGE collections, the talk will look at recent work with seaweed specimens undertaken at the RBGE, as well as significant personal collections, including those of Amelia Griffiths, Anna Atkins and Margaret Gatty.
Central to the working practice at Garvald is the belief that each individual has a unique contribution to make. The main room was to have a roof sloping backwards to keep the rain off so there would be no castlations of the rear wall to allow the rain to exit. So to address this, 30mm was removed from the bottom, but this left the overall height short by 30mm of the required 1250mm. An elderly chap looking at my Regis - albeit, in Australia - commented that he did not know that Crossley made anything as new as my Regis - he obviously knew of the older, large cars for which Crossley Motors is famous. The 13mm keyless chuck has a ratcheting lock to ensure that bits are held securely without working loose.


They aim to support individuals to fulfil their potential within Garvald and the wider community.
The following account explains the facts of what a Regis actually is and gives the history of the car and how it was developed.
I left the edges of all sides square as the design fitted into our decor at the time I made it. A handy battery level indicator shows how much charge is left in the battery; two lights means the battery is charged, one light means half charge and no lights means you should recharge the battery. In manifesting their ideas in artworks the Artists of Garvald have made a significant contribution to the Garden’s education programme in their own distinct and skilled way. Details of the SpecificationA and other aspect of the Regis areA covered to help Owners to keep their cars "on the road".
Like the DeWalt this is a professional standard tool and as soon as you pick it up the solid feel of the drill gives you confidence it will tackle most jobs with out missing a beat.
The new model was first described by the motoring press in August 1934 and showed a more modern style of car but with some rather a€?angulara€? features.
The magazine incorrectly stated that the new bodyA  was to be the new standard body for the (new) Ten chassis. The body was a smarter, more modern design than the Ten although not quite as long as the subsequent Regis and possibly Gordon Macandrew saw this body and decided he could have a better one designed.
FS 9998 was the result.A This car is the special bodied car built by RanalaghA for the March 1934 RAC Bournemouth Rally, illustrated in The Autocar of 23rd March 1934. The later Regis of C F Beauvais design was slightly longer to provide a larger boot and also accommodate the six-cylinder engine option of the Regis. However, by the time the Crossley Regis appeared at the 1934 Motor Show, it was basically the same as Mr McAndrewa€™s car, Crossley having engaged Mr Beauvais to tidy up their body to the New Avon design. This became the standard Crossley Regis available in Ten and Twelve horsepower versions until the end of car production in 1937. Note the more angular coachwork when compared to the Beauvais-designed Regis Sports Saloon.
These views are from Veteran and Vintage Magazine archives.A The chassis itself was modified from the Ten style basically in the shape of the main chassis side members. The older Crossley Tens had a parallel chassis to the rear engine mountings when the chassis angled sharply outwards to provide parallel side members from just behind the engine to the rear of the car. This allowed the older style of body, with a full-width scuttle, to be supported by the chassis.
The Regis body, however, tapered from the a€?Ba€? post of the body towards the radiator and was supported on timber main sills that tapered to a point level with the rear engine mounts.
The rather heavier Regis model probably prompted Crossleys to offer the larger 12hp version to regain a€“ and surpass - the performance of the earlier Tens. UD 6393 was registered on 6th Novemebr 1934 and the Regis Sport Saloons cars were already at 100051 by 3rd November 1934 so both types of Regis were usingdifferent chassis number series it would seem.. See Chassis List page for more details.The first 100 chassis included Ten and Twelve horsepower cars.
Mr J R I Crossley, one of the family members involved in the Crossley car empire, states, in correspondence to Motoring Historian, the late Michael Sedgwick, that a€?about six interim modelsa€? were built.
In the records maintained by the Crossley Register, which includes some car details taken from the surviving records of Council Registration Records, the highest chassis number of cars shown within the four cylinder sequence is 100504. Similarly, no numbers are on record within the six cylinder sequence 100901 to 100999, suggesting that none were made within this series. Six cylinder cars were, however, continued from 101001 upwards, the highest recorded being 101043, a registration record.
Actual cars known to exist in this area are 101036 the 1936 Motor Show Twelve horsepower car (used by a Register Member until sold in 1968) and 101041 an existing car in preservation.
Under the circumstances, the number of Regises built may vary between about 900 and 1050, depending on whether or not the gaps mentioned were actually a€?gapsa€? and not just a lack of information. In this context, Coventry Climax engines used in the Regis had the chassis numbers of the cars to which they were originally fitted stamped on the edge of their flywheels. A six cylinder engine has been found in Australia, JMC 155, showing a chassis number 100900.
This does not, unfortunately, prove that other cars were built with numbers within the 900 series.A A Several people have heard the story about a Regis being smuggled out of the Factory and being built in a garage workshop. This illegal act was discovered when the owner wanted spares and the chassis numberA quoted had not been issued by the Factory. Perhaps this more than rumour was actually a car quoted in the 100901 - 100999 series before the Factory had actually reached those numbers!A From the chassis numbers listed in the "Chassis List" page of this website, Cars between 1 and 100 were built in both 10 and 12hp versions.
Taking the 10 hp cars as 100101 to 100504 gives us 404 cars plus the 20 from the first 100 series and that gives us 424 cars.
With the 12 hp cars, 100601 to 101043 gives us 443 cars but the possible absence of the 900 series not being used reduces this to 343 cars.
This suggests, since the final number made may well be higher than 100504 - for 10 hp cars or 101043 for 12 hp cars. Let usA estimate that 425 cars were built of both 10 hp and 12 hp cars - a total of 850 vehicles.
A select band of quality cars.A A four cylinder a€“ Ten horsepower a€“ car exists as chassis number 100121. It was owned by an ex-Factory Foreman, Mr Jacques of Bury, Lancashire and had quarter lights operated by small wheels instead of the sliding locks normally fitted to the Regis - similar sliding locks were fitted to Jaguar XJ 6a€™s until recently.
The a€?wheela€? operation of quarter lights was used by the German firm Borgward in their a€?Isabellaa€? models of the 1950a€™s and early 60a€™s. Chassis 100039 (The late Ron Wilsdona€™s car, ABY 690 had the same quarter light treatment.) Such an item on the Regis may have been included as an added a€?attractiona€? to patrons at a Motor Show similar to the a€?cutawaya€? cars at modern Shows and the chromed chassis used by Crossley for some of its larger models at earlier Motor Shows. Rumour has it that these latter items ended up as fill for the bomb craters within the Works during World War 2. What a terrible shame!A In Australia, the Regis types were supplied without bodies since this reduced import duty for the imported chassis. Bodies were often supplied by Ruskin Motor Bodies of Melbourne but some of the Motor Show cars displayed at the Melbourne International Motor Show in June each year had bodies to the UK design and may have been fully imported vehicles.
Ruskins at least, had a design of their own for the Regis body, similar bodies being also built on Triumph Gloria chassis.
In the Coach and Motor Body Builder of Australia and New Zealand, a Trade Journal, a design is illustrated in a 1935 edition for a six-light body on a Regis chassis, again quite different from the UK outline (a four light design) and advertised as a a€?streamlinea€? version. The Company was at the forefront of bright two-tone liveries on the Regis, having a second colour picking out the mudguards and running board and also the raised relief above the aluminium beading just below window level and continuing over the doors and windscreen. To avoid overstating the colours, when two extremely contrasting colours were used, such as maroon (Tuscan Red) and fawn (Desert Sand) the secondary colour, fawn, was used only on the raised relief and not on the mudguards and running boards.


In all cases, the raised concentric circle section of the wheel discs were also painted in the lighter colour.
Anecdotal evidence from different people indicates that Crossley Motors were well known as offering two tone a€?brighta€? colurs on their cars of the 1930a€™s and covers the Crossley Ten era as well as the later Regis.
My own Regis, bodied by Ruskin MotorA Bodies of Melbourne, Australia, was originally dark green (Bottle Green) overpainted white at a later date. The wheels, however, had been painted silver on their outer sides only and the interior faces were what appeared to be an original duck egg blue although in slightly different shades due to weathering. In August, 1934, the Industry magazines described the squarer a€?interima€? design in great detail.
On the Motor Show stand for that year, Crossley exhibited both the a€?interima€? and Beauvais-designed cars.
After about January 1935, no further mention of a€?Regisa€? appears and only the Beauvaismodels were available a€“ in 10 and 12hp form. Later adverts appear to have been more general with comments such as a€?A precision built Crossleya€? or a€?A car with no nonsensea€?.. The Motor Show adverts for the 1935 Show used the theme of a€?Make a point of seeing the New Crossleysa€?, the illustration being a light-coloured Regis.
Cook and Palmer, the main Crossley distributors for Londonused a drawing of a Regis with the slogan a€?To try it is to buy ita€?. Some of these adverts have been available on ebay using the a€?Art Decoa€? slogan by the dealers selling them.A Letters to customers from Crossley Motors suggest that cars were not available sometime between January 1937 and September 1937, this latter date stating that the cars were not available due to other commitments of the Factory. However, whilst not being confirmation of the end of production, it is interesting to note that The Motor magazine of 5th October 1937 carried an advert for Regis 4 and 6 cylinder cars as well as the 3 litre 20.9hp Sports Saloon.
Cost 365, accept 215.a€? The advert was illustrated with a fine three quarter front offside view of the Beauvias Three litre saloon!
So much for advertising standards!A Brochures were always available for the Regis and appeared for the four cylinder a€“ red and gold and six cylinder cars a€“ blue and white. Right to the end of production, however, the illustration of the chassis in these brochures showed the dash area to be that of the original a€?interima€? model a€“ rather similar to the old Crossley Ten.
The support for the dashboard showed the holes to allow glove boxes to be fitted in the dashboard itself so that the a€?interima€? model must have differed from the Regis Sports Saloon in this area as well.
Even in the brochures for the 1936 cars where the 1640cc engine was mentioned, this a€?interima€? style of chassis was shown. From the outside, the car illustrated was invariably a light coloured car with a four cylinder grill a€“ even though the brochure was specifically for the six cylinder model.
Pass and Joyce were agents with showrooms in London and Manchester a€“ having also been involved with competing with a Ten in the RAC Rally to Torquay a€“ leading to one version of the Ten having this model name. Cook and Palmer in London advertised themselves for Regis sales and Gordon C McAndrew of Edinburgh who actually had the body design that lead to the Crossley Regis itself, was an agent until the Company stopped car production in mid 1937.A The Coronation Edition of The Autocar of May 1937 included a well-known Crossley advert showing a Regis, a Mancunian Streamline bus and a six-wheeled trolley bus in a coloured, glossy page establishing a€“ rather than actually advertising a€“ Crossleya€™s involvement in both car and commercial vehicle manufacture. The artista€™s illustration showed a hybrid version of the Regis a€“ neither the a€?interima€? nor Beauvais versions!
The winning car referred to in the advert had been, however, a Crossley Ten of 1933 although this was not specified to the buying public.
This has some truth in the context that they did buy some cars back that were offered for sale so that they could update the cars used by their staff. For example, BTD 272, the Maroon 1936 show car, chassis 101036, was registered on 1st November 1936 and purchased by Harwoods Ltd, the haulage and taxi firm in Darwen,Lancashire for use as a taxi. They sold the car back to Crossleys in November 1940 and it was then used by Mr Whittaker, a bus salesman until about 1955. It would be unlikely and uneconomic for the Company to have literally a€?bought backa€? all their production so this shows the practical aspect of this rumour. Whilst used by Mr Whittaker, the car was registered in his name but when he left the Company in 1955, it was Crossley Motors who sold the car to The Prince of Wales Motor Company of Moss Side, Manchester. This firm was operated by Mr Small, one time employee of Crossley Motors who had travelled with the Prince of Walesa€™ overseas tours to service his fleet of Crossley cars.
The car later ended up with a Mr Foster of Newton Heath, Manchester who raised the height of the rear shackles to tow a trailer with competition motor bikes that he used in Isle of Man TT Races. By this time it was painted black and regrettably ended its days requiring some body repairs when the roof of the garage where it was stored collapsed on it.
After the first twelve months or so, the Company was receiving more Military vehicle orders as well as commercial vehicle orders, mainly buses and space was at a premium at Gorton.
Orders for the Regis were not high in number and it was decided by the Board of Directors to work on a three monthly basis of building these cars. Despite this, construction continued until well into 1937 after which it ceased completely.
During early 1936, all finishing work on vehicles was carried out at the Companya€™s Hyde Factory although few Regis cars were taken there since production was by then running at a low level.
Engines were number MC1501 upwards for four cylinder 1122cc units and the six cylinder engines were numbered JM 1xx upwards denoting 1476cc units. Late in production, a larger six cylinder engine of 1640cc was introduced and these were numbers JMC 101 upwards. All the engines were of the inlet over exhaust configuration.Bodies were built on wheeled bucks and only transferred to their chassis when the main frame and panelling was completed, mudguards and running boards then assembled during the finishing process. Flooring and trimming and wiring was done once the body and chassis were joined.A The body was usually built by a team of workers with coachbuilding skills to a high standard - as often stated in the Crossley Motors publicity and Trade Press descriptions. Registrations in the chassis list show a Regis registration in April 1937 which would fit into this time slot.
However, lack of accurate registration and sales information does not reveal an actual date at this stage and such statements are made with this in mind. Michael Eyre, (Part Author of a€?Crossleya€?) points out that Sales Staff are not known for their definitive statements amd may well say whatever they need to say to make a sale or explain why a sale is not possible at a certain time.
This car has been mentioned with its photograph in the Crossley Registera€™s Newsletter but no other information is available.A The late Michael Wylie, an automotive historian in Belfast has tried to find more information for me without success, before he passed away but, as he rightly said, Ireland has not a great liking for Crossley due to their use by the hated Black and Tans in the history of Ireland. So much so that the Crossley Tender features sinisterly in various songs and verse recording these events. This car was owned by Crossley Motors and was Chassis Number 100019 which would date it as 1934 but the car was not registered until 1936, presumably for the Rally.
