Way back in May I visited the National Trust Property ‘Lower Brockhampton’ to see the work being done to repair the medieval Timber Frame. Part of this involved cleaving fresh oak lathes for the Wattle and Daub panels, for this a lovely oak was felled from the estate. Two 4ft lengths of the stem were left over and I was very kindly allowed to take them back to Devon with me for future Green wood chair projects!
I cleaved one length of the oak during Dorset Arts Week at Guy woodland workshop and embarked on a post and rung Bar Stool. Having no previous experience of working green oak I wanted to find out how the oak would work, and most importantly behave as it dried out. Over the next few days I am planning to put together a new page about the process of making this Green Oak Bar stool.
PS: Many thanks to Tayler at Blindspot Design for sorting out the website and blogging page for me. Great work! www.blindspotdesign.co.uk
