For many years I have enjoyed the challenge of converting reclaimed timber into objects which are beautiful to display. My preference is always to start with a section of a log with the bark still attached. Cutting into new timber is always exciting as I never know what the grain will be like. Choosing a shape to best display the grain is the next challenge. Once I have settled on a shape the finished item becomes a picture in my mind and I work to complete the project. I use only timber sourced from trees that have to be felled for safety reasons or that have fallen naturally. I believe that the items I produce give a second life to this timber.
