Bow Leg Table
There is a quirky simplicity to this handmade bow leg table commissioned in English sweet chestnut. A close relation to the mighty oak, sweet chestnut, which is often overlooked as a timber for furniture, is solid and hardwearing, with a beautiful creamy appearance. The English sweet chestnut is thought to have been introduced to the British Isles by the Romans and is now regarded as an ‘honorary native’ species. It is well worth considering when choosing a timber for your bespoke furniture.
