Beautiful feature island handcrafted at our workshop in Plumpton Green as a one-off piece for a customer in London. The vast colour palette of English walnut paints stunning variations in the wood with unique natural patterns and striations. The planks originate from the same tree and were kiln-dried to below 10% moisture content using our on-site vacuum kiln, thus providing maximum stability and all-round protection.
The design merges two full stave character planks through a translucent river of epoxy resin stretching across the centre of the island, which crystallizes the bark and live edges in a durable transparent seal. The entire surface was further encapsulated in resin to preserve and enhance the rustic features of the timber. Aside from its aesthetic appeal, epoxy is also extremely hard-wearing.
