Prowling Jaguar

Over 700 year old piece of English Yew

This is the best lump of wood I've ever got hold of, and I'm guessing at its age but it's possibly even old enough to have been recorded in the Domesday book in 1086. It was a very old Yew that I felled while working as a tree surgeon four or five years ago. It was easily the worst thing I did during my time as a tree surgeon.

Resin Table

Casting resin and coloured acrylics

This coffee table contrasts old and new. I've married the natural beauty of gnarled old Elm to modern materials and style. The process I used was to cast resin and coloured acrylics to span the natural gap between old waney edged Elm boards. The whole thing is contrastingly encased in a fairly uniform retro style table.

Leaping Jaguar

Natural beauty of redwood

This is Redwood again. I love its colours; the timber is full of sap and tannins which bleed out red and purple when it's cut. Any newly exposed surface of the wood will bleed these amazing colours until it's sealed. This cat is huge, measuring 2.3m long and 1m in height.

Sail coffee table

Mixed materials

This is one of the weirdest things I've made. It's sculpted MDF, various woods, acrylic and lacquer. It was quite good fun carving MDF for a change, very different working with a material that's entirely uniform. This was a commission from a friend, which allowed me free reign to experiment with materials.

Puma Table

A puma hunting in snow

This table represents a mountain lion hunting in deep snow. I found these awesome pictures of a cougar hunting a snow hare and became more than captivated by the scene, so I decided to make it into an outlandish coffee table. I love it. The cat is Redwood, the snowy table sections are versatile MDF and lacquer.

Lacquered Bench

Japanese style

My ideas for this bench were all based on showcasing a contrast between wood against a base or block of colour. What emerged was a very Japanese look, or at least Eastern, with a very naked wood shape that looks elegant against the simple base.
