A couple of years ago a friend of mine, Peter, came to me with a bunch of oak that had a wonderful history.
The story goes that a family member was in the wine making business and had got a 10’ tall 20’ diameter cask that was made in Europe in the 1920’s. The wood sat around for decades until it reached Peter’s hands. He in turn had made flooring out of it for several rooms of his home and offered me some of it. When I first saw it, the material didn’t look promising but with a little bit of hard work the results speak for themselves.
All the best
