Here is an English Character Oak table for sale. Dimensions are 2m x 900mm x 40mm thick. Choice of the base. Contact me here for details.
Handmade Pippy Oak table for sale with a beautifully rare full character 3 board top. The central ‘show’ board is 500mm wide, with the 2 outer boards being 250mm wide and 40mm thick. The handmade table dimensions are 2.6m (8ft 6in) x 1m (3ft 3.5in). The buyer has the option of a metal or wooden base. This table, with the full character Pippy oak central board is the last board from the full character Pippy Oak log that I managed to source from one of my very conscientious timber merchants, of which I have been fortunate to construct 4 wonderful tables from, 3 of which are gracing discerning homes. The first of which was for a very special commission. Another name for Pippy Oak comes from America in the form of ‘Cat’s Paw Oak’, of which you may be more familiar.
In between commissions, I’m also working on a couple of handmade tables which will be for sale once ready. The first handmade table has a pippy Oak top with a live/waney edge and a butterfly reclaimed Elm base. A very pretty table at 2.4m long and 900mm to 1m wide.
The second handmade table is a fantastic pippy Oak slab 3m long and 900mm wide – I’m not given to adjectives but this will be truly ‘stunning’.
This is going to be a one off piece. The Oak tree that this one piece top came from must have been at least 250 years old to get to this size. The top also incorporates ‘butterfly’ joints or ‘stitching’ in reclaimed mahogany. This is a nod to one of the woodworking greats, George Nakashima.
It’s going to have a contemporary metal base and will be a very handsome piece with big ‘wow’ factor.
Once both pieces are finished and I’ve taken some decent photos of them I shall post them on my ‘For Sale’ page.
