Rustic Ash Chairs
Green woodworking at its best.
I am a traditional green woodworker and a member of the Association of Green Woodworkers and Pole-lathe Turners, and use only traditional and sustainable skills and methods to design and create unique, bespoke and beautiful Ash wood furniture items to suit contemporary and traditional-style homes. Products include rocking chairs, dining or side chairs, large 'Uncle Fred' chairs, bar stools, footstools and my uniquely designed 'Gentlemans' chairs which can be used in a forward-facing or backwards-facing manner. All chair styles can be made with an option of chair back styles e.g. ladder back, spindle or lath, and are seated with natural Danish cord, kambaa or paper rush fibre cord in a variety of colours. Chair dimensions available range from child to extra-large adult size but I work in collaboration with the client to meet their specifications for bespoke commissions.
The timber is sourced from a local woodland and felled as part of a sustainable woodland management project. From log to chair, all items are completely hand crafted without the use of modern power tools; the processes used in the chair making are all traditional and utilise the natural properties of the timber. Commissions are always welcome and green woodworking demonstrations are well-received at events.
