Old English elm and oak are the preferred timbers I like to work with; I have a collection of oak and elm planks that have been stored since 1983.

I look for interesting features such as wild grain, knots or cracks. These unique markings show the natural beauty of the tree and I want to project and bring into focus these features, because for me they are more interesting than a plain perfect piece of wood.

I hope you appreciate this style of working with what nature has provided and you get as much pleasure from looking at or using your table as I had from finding and working with these wonderful timbers.
