Uncovering patterns of beauty and bewilderment...?!
Working with green oak on a daily basis is immensely enjoyable...indeed the temptation when talking about the pleasures of timber framing is to slip into a sea of cliches and overused phrases. I'm not going to bother to try to say what's already been said, those who know will already know, and anyway, the pictures do the talking. Suffice to say everyone in the workshop comes to look when patterns like these come to the surface.
How about those medullary rays in this air-dried brace? Not half as pleasing as they are in real life.
