Sourced from storm fallen timber harvested from our woodland. The log which this piece came from has been left outside in the elements where it has started to spalt, creating these beautiful black lines and dappled markings.
By cutting and seasoning the wood, the spalting process stops. Then I have the pleasure of revealing what’s inside.
As I was sanding this piece a large crack developed. It was rather gutting being so close to the finish line but I had an idea to brace it with a slip of wood, making a real feature of it. I used an offcut of walnut I had from a previous project.
With the spalted timber being quite delicate I ended up over sanding the area where the crack occurred resulting in an inconsistent rim thickness. I will be therefore selling this as a second. I don’t think it affects the piece too much but I know it’s not quite perfect.
