HORSE CHESTNUT BURR 3.2cm to 3.6cm thick – tree number 1390D Natural Waney Live Edge Slab Board Kiln Dried Planed Seasoned Hardwood Wildwood – Bookmatched Sets Double and Single Waney Edge
Special batch of long awaited and much anticipated Burr Horse Chestnut – the conker tree – the first 12 boards of this unique tree which came from an estate in Nottinghamshire, where it had been felled due to having died after a very long life – this is the top of the tree, the bottom I still have to put through the sawmill and reaches 6 foot diameter!
I have presented 6 of the best boards as 3 bookmatched sets, suitable for table tops or many other uses. They could be orientated as standard bookmatches or reverse style for less of a mirror image look – see the pics where I have pictured some of them in different styles.
Horse Chestnut is normally quite plain but the timber from this old tree is uniquely figured, with pink heart colour, burr and flame. Once polished this timber will be even more stunning.
There are boards up to 295cm long by 60 wide. The sets are 3.6cm thick, odd boards are 3.2cm. Find them currently at the top of the latest products page here or use the filter for horse chestnut on the shop page like this
