One of the prettiest, most interesting pieces of timber I’ve found in forty years working with wood, hence the price.
This night stand has been made from the root ball of a 300 year old oak tree growing on the boundary of the old Seale Hayne agricultural college.
It contains heart wood, burr, ripple, sap wood, brown oak and areas of insect attack. It has been microwaved to ensure anything living in the wood has been cooked, is no longer with us and, by now, will be dehydrated.
The same time taken to turn the vessel was invested in finishing the piece with 3 coats of Danish oil. It was buffed between coats then protected with multiple thin layers of a micro crystalline wax.
A one of a kind hand cut and turned dish - perfect to use as a jewellery dish to store your favourite rings, earrings or cufflinks. It is approximately 80mm x 80mm x 20mm.

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
