English Oak folding doors

Peter Guille at Bespoke Green Oak sent us pictures of these fantastic folding doors he made from our English Oak… WOW..  who needs solid walls when you can have moving ones like this?

Peter works not so far away from us at his workshop near Romsey, Hampshire. To see more of his handiwork drop in to see him or visit his website http://www.bespokegreenoak.co.uk/ or blog  http://bespokegreenoak.wordpress.com/

Bespoke Green Oak make a special effort to only use homegrown Oak in their furniture, joinery and garden structures. This timber comes mainly from trees grown in the south eastern quarter of the country – Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey. 

This means that when you commission work from Peter at Bespoke Green Oak you are supporting foresters, woodland workers and independent sawmills who are hard at work preserving our woodland heritage and our national timber industry.

You have to admire this genuinely sustainable approach to woodworking as the market is flooded with wonderful imported timbers.. but we’re on Peter’s side… to us nothing beats English timber.. and luckily we have lots of it to play with!

Peter’s photos were taken by www.propertyfocus.co
