This bespoke dining table made from English Oak and finished with 15 layers of ‘Rowden’s finest oil’ is to become a family heirloom as it will be passed down the generations.
“MIGHTY OAKS FROM LITTLE ACORNS GROW”
A hand carved inscription as a family motto engraved by our very own head tutor and maker, Daren Millman, beautifully carved using specialist chisels by Chris Pye. Each tool plays an important role in the styling for different aspects of each letter. As you can see in the photo, these letters are arranged on the computer, printed off and arranged on the table. Daren would then trace over these letters with carbon copy paper to make an imprint on the wood.
The simple overriding design lays the foundations for some very intricate features all paying homage to the great Oak tree. The huge surface top sits upon an inverted barrel design. This stand was created by recent graduate and designer/maker Michael Crohn who put together this inverted barrel and routed out the surface to create the beautiful ‘bark’ details.
