Tables in Elm or Oak & Metal
Old English elm and oak are the preferred timbers I like to work with. I look for interesting features such as wild grain, knots or cracks. These unique markings show the natural beauty of the tree and I want to project and bring into focus these features, because for me they are more interesting than a plain perfect piece of wood. I hope you appreciate this style of working with what nature has provided and you get as much pleasure from looking at or using your table as I had from finding and working with these wonderful timbers.
I have a collection of oak and elm planks that have been stored since 1983; these are now being planed and sanded prior to being matched to create bespoke table tops. Made to order these tables will start from £100 per foot; oak or elm bases start from £250.
