This chair and 2 other designs in Ash & Sweet Chestnut will be on my stand at the Norfolk Show 28th & 29th June in the ‘Forestry & Wood village’. I will be demonstrating chair making and talking to anyone interested, and also taking orders.
Along with other local chair makers and craftspeople I will be exhibiting, and working on a couple of chairs at White House Farm, Great Glemham at the Alde Valley Spring Festival. I will be there on the weekends of 22nd & 23 April, and 20th & 21st May 10am – 6pm.
The table only has one leg as the end of the top is attached to the inside of the barge. The leg can be folded up and the table top fits in between the seats to make a bed.
A small topped table with tapered legs made from coppiced Ash with a solid Ash rectangular top, and coppiced Ash Armchair.
This Ash chair is possibly going to be for a book shop with a children’s section. It is also strong enough for an adult to stand on. It has 5 grown bends and 2 steam bent parts.
Steam bent components are stable once the wood has dried. Joints are then cut ready for assembly.
Coppiced wood is used for chair making and to make the under-frame of the table. The table top is made from mature Ash sawn and seasoned in planks. English Ash usually gets brown streaks in it as the tree gets older.
