Tree-Tables made from Elm Wood

 

Although most of our native elm trees have died due to Dutch-elm desease, the tree still survives in various areas and pockets of this country, and so is still available in limited quantities. It is a wonderful wood for tree-tables, a rich warm colour and with diverse patterns and textures in the grain.† Elm tree-tables have been very popular over the years, perhaps it is a way of connecting with what for most of us is a tree lost from our countryside.

 

The carved tree (right) is particularly remarkable for itís herring-bone pattern to the grain, a little of which you can see in the table top below, which is a very typical example of planked elm wood.

Below is an example of elm burr, which is a little bit more unusual, but nice when I can find it.
