The making of table in solid salvaged English oak

The client had a clear idea of what they wanted having seen one of my tables at a friend’s house. The finished result like the original friend’s table makes use of all the textures and natural patterns of the salvaged oak, when making and sanding it reminds me of aerial views of landscape or river beds - just stunning. The horizontal grain on the legs continues the visual interest.

This is the raw salvaged oak before plaining that was shown to the client for approval. It is unusual to have such curvy pieces and the exciting possibilities this gave.

The finished result, dimensions 325cm x 120cm.
