Table for F&E of welsh ash with concrete base legs

The top was made from three curved pieces of ash from the Moor Park estate in Wales. Moor Park house had belonged to the client’s parents. In the stable yard at the back of the house was a small furniture workshop that used the timber from the estate to make furniture for the house and local commissions, over the years a large collection of ash, elder, cherry, oak and walnut had been put aside for the workshop to use.

The family asked me if I would be interested in the timber but also if I would make them a table in ash for their London home that would remind them of their childhood spent in this wonderful place - note the treehouse!

Size; 1 x 2 m with extensions at both ends to 2.8 in length.
The concrete base allows the legs to be as narrow a width as possible to give the sitter more leg room. Finished in a clear matt oil which is used for floors, being water and wine resistant.
