About the process
A piece is selected from seasoned wood for its grain and colour.
They are carefully cut to show the best grain .
The wood is turned to size then sanded through 5 different grits of sand paper.
It is then rubbed with danish oil to bring out the beautiful grain then rubbed with a bees wax mix before completing with the premium fittings
