This piece is constructed from three elements - a stool-top supported by a small and large ‘vault’. Each element is cut from a slab of solid Yorkshire oak, and sanded down to the desired shape. Using a process called ebonisation, the oak is then treated with an iron solution which reacts with the timber to create a darkened surface, similar to ebony. Lastly an oil finish is applied before the table is assembled.
