I have recently finished working on a new selection of ring boxes and occasional box in a range of stunning woods including English Walnut, American Walnut and English Oak, with some very special 5300 year old Bog Oak detailing.

Where the bog oak came from

When the oak tree was growing over 5000 years ago the climate was dramatically changing.  The sea level was rising and the climate was becoming much wetter as the planet continued warming after the last ice age.  The Cambridge fens were once dry rich soils growing enormous oak trees, but with a wetter climate and rising sea levels, the land turned into bogs and marshes.  The oak trees died and fell into the bogs, and sank into an anaerobic layer where there was no oxygen, and thus no decomposition.

The tannins in the oak reacted with iron in the water, turning the wood black over hundreds of years.  These trees are now dug up during every day farming practices, they can be sawn and used in furniture making as this stunning black timber, with a great story to tell
