English Elm. Famed for its wild grain & now uncommon in the UK due to Dutch Elm disease wiping them out in the 70's. The spalting (water marks) & Burr (knots) make this a rare & desirable piece. The variation in colour is due to the wood coming from various parts of the tree & over time will balance out. The diagonal stretchers are Ash. Dimensions H40cm W43cm at widest point L1mtr. The hand finished top is 8cm thick. Norse constuction utilising "fox in the hole" method ie: The wedge is hidden in the spigot hole. I use this method when I don't want the spigot to show in the top. Finished with interior Danish Oil (very resistant to hot cups etc) May be waxed over if you prefer a shiny finish.
Will deliver for price of petrol if within 30 mile radius of Burnley.
The wood used for this table was cut down in Cumbria from trees that had stood dead for many years due to the outbreak of Dutch Elm decease. English Elm is now uncommon due to this & the spalting (Water marks) & Burr (knots) make this a rare & desirable piece. Much of the wood ended up as firewood. The rest was milled into planks & beams. I cut the champhers facing up to show off the grain detail. This was my first hand finished piece. As I stripped back the rough surface the "art" of the the wood revealed itself. "The art is in the wood, the crafter gleans it form the wood"
