People are so aften surprised to find that English Elm is available to work with.

The trees no longer survive in our southern part of the country (except for a few pockets eg. Preston Park Brighton) but they do grow healthily further north where climatic variations have meant they didn’t ‘go Dutch’… and here’s the proof!

Adrian and Chris at Cimtree ( fine furniture designer/makers www.cimitree.com ) have recently finished this handmade Elm kitchen. (more…)

Through the window I spotted the round timber lorry edging into the yard.

Wait until you see what was on this lorry… very exciting!  This is the first of about 10 lorries that are on their way into the yard with some stunning logs.

Graham and Grant have just started sticking them but they aren’t going fast enough for me to show you the evidence now. They do have a camera with them to photograph as they work so I’m looking forward to seeing what’s on the menu…

I heard mention of huge logs having to be cut down from 30ft length and so wide and heavy they have to be transported in half logs… I don’t think the two G’s will be lifting those boards by hand !

Peter Guille at Bespoke Green Oak sent us pictures of these fantastic folding doors he made from our English Oak… WOW..  who needs solid walls when you can have moving ones like this?

Peter works not so far away from us at his workshop near Romsey, Hampshire. To see more of his handiwork drop in to see him or visit his website http://www.bespokegreenoak.co.uk/ or blog  http://bespokegreenoak.wordpress.com/

Bespoke Green Oak make a special effort to only use homegrown Oak in their furniture, joinery and garden structures. This timber comes mainly from trees grown in the south eastern quarter of the country – Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey. 

This means that when you commission work from Peter at Bespoke Green Oak you are supporting foresters, woodland workers and independent sawmills who are hard at work preserving our woodland heritage and our national timber industry.

You have to admire this genuinely sustainable approach to woodworking as the market is flooded with wonderful imported timbers.. but we’re on Peter’s side… to us nothing beats English timber.. and luckily we have lots of it to play with!

Peter’s photos were taken by www.propertyfocus.co
