I take inspiration from the beauty and diversity of the wood I use.
.
Beech has a beautiful grain that runs through the wood and it’s ideal for things like clocks, lamps and mirrors.
.
Ash on the other hand has a beautiful creamy white to pale straw and reddish brown colour. It ages very well.
.
Sycamore has a smooth lustrous white to pale yellowish hue, occasionally with a tight fiddle back figure.
.
Oak has a light tan to biscuit colour with distinctive grain patterns. It weathers to silver grey in a year if left untreated. Oak is a strong beautiful wood and many of the wooden ships and churches that remain today from hundreds of years ago are constructed primarily of oak.
