We source our oak from an ancient woodland that we also manage, a few miles downstream from our workshop, on the banks of the River Tay. Our cool damp weather grows strong warm dark honey coloured timber full of wonderful character. The species is Quercus robur – the native oak of the UK. Be aware that ‘oak’ is a loose term like ‘beef’ and most ‘oak’ furniture available in the UK is not our native species.
