The riven bench is an ideal display for natural curves and figuring of cleft oak. Wedged profiles and reliable strength enable a design possible for good posture and durability. In its simplest form, there is still individual character and beauty of natural shapes.
Hand finishing an impressive slab of riven oak towards a luxurious seat. Spoke-shaves follow the contours with no need for sanding. From log to a tactile smooth finish with the simplest of tools.
Riven, coloured and carved.
