I also make tables
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.
Logs are split using a Froe & cudgel into quarters. The cudgel is laying on the ground in the photo.

I want to make chairs that make people want to choose wood over other materials, also wood from the type of trees that they might see on their way to work.

This is my best selling chair called No.1 chair. Made from coppiced Ash from Bradfield woods in Suffolk, I have been making this design for 20 years now, although it has developed over the years. The light blue chair is an earlier version.
