Here is a complex compounded curved piece recently completely using some figured Ash we supplied to him earlier in the year. This was a commission from a private client to house some Audio equipment, hence the holes in the back. Work like this cannot be achieved by machines, from start to finish Duncan put in around 360hrs of work, largely by hand.

Rippled English Walnut Root R6

When dealing with walnut roots, which we do rarely these days only only then with very promising pieces after many hours of working on average material thinking that every root contains stunning material as its a root, they dont, I say that having cut a lot of them. Only the very best of them containing minimal shake, expectional colour and stripe are worth the trouble and effort of sawing, these are very rare. We deal with them by trimming back the last ft or so closest to the ground subject to the log to lessen the risk of damaging a very large expensive saw, these short pieces are then taken back to our yard where we then break them up into blockis firstly with a chainsaw then on to a bandsaw, the effort is sometimes repaid with stunning pieces such as this.rnrnThis item is fresh sawn so please treat as such, if you are unsure about how to do this a little research ahead of time would be my best advice.rnrnI
