Stroking Wood

The aim with this page is to show you a few of the procedures there are when turning planked timber into a finished piece.

The name of this page is a homage to my Dad who made a fantasic speech at my wedding to Jo in 2010. Those who were there will know!


Here is a little clip of me surfacing a piece of English Oak which became a worktop to a side table for clients in Cardiff.


Midwinter thicknessing with Rodhan Scadding. The English Oak we are machining finally became 3metre long table tops.


More videos from the workshop....
