Oak Commission

A few months ago I was asked to make 2-4 pieces from an old oak tree that was taken down due to disease. I finished them last week and met with the customer showing her 8 pieces to choose from. She couldn't decide which ones she liked the most so she bought them all! Below are a few pics of the pieces.


  1. I'm not at all surprised that she bought all the eight pieces...they're all lovely pieces to remember a tree by. My favourite is the large natural-edged bowl in the top shows the medullary rays superbly. The thick-walled bowls are always appealing, and the finish looks superb.


  2. Andy, thanks so much for the comment! The customer has told many of her friends to get in touch with me as well. Word of mouth advertising is great!
