Structural heavy turned green oak timber posts & columns
We can machine heavy timber into hexagonal or octagonal columns and we can also turn heavy posts for use as structural posts in timber framed projects or as decorative columns.
Below is a pair of turned softwood posts shown on the lathe and in place after painting. Thank you to our favourite children's author for the photo!
This green oak pillar has been fine sanded and waxed and would be a striking centre column for a spiral staircase or grand structural pillars.
The timber is shown being sawmilled as an octagonal post .

All our gates are hand made to order. We are very proud of our repuation for attention to detail and our use of only the best quality carefully selected timber in our gates.

Art and Sculpture Display plinths
A variety of exhibition stands and art and sculpture display plinths.
Solid oak art sculpture plinth / Exhibition stand/ Table
Please contact us for sizes and prices of these exhibition plinths
The sculpture plinth shown above measures 300 x 300 x 600. It is made in solid 'green' (unseasoned) English Oak and this particular plinth has been fine sanded and waxed. There are a myriad of uses for these beautiful tactile blocks including tables, chairs, display stands or sculpture plinths. Green Oak is unseasoned and will show some splitting and checking as it dries. Seasoned Oak is a more expensive but more stable alternative if required.
Andy made this replica cross from seasoned air dried oak as part of a restoration / conservation project for a local church.
This is a bespoke hand made heavy oak rustic farmhouse / refectory table base commissioned to support a very heavy solid slate table top.
Tudor-style seasoned oak bench with hand-turned tapered legs made for The National Trust at Cotehele House, Cornwall. This was hand-made with an adze to reflect the simplistic design which would have been used for the kitchen garden.
Oak Sign Posts
Below is a sign post / way marker made from durable dry seasoned English Oak. Oak signposts are ideal for heritage trails. The lettering is engraved. The signposts can be left untreated and will grey in time, or we can factory spray them with a woodstain or paint. This post was factory sprayed with white paint and the 3D lettering was infilled with black paint. please contact us for prices.
