Product Details


As with all things made of wood, every coaster is totally unique, but of course, some are more unique than others.

The golden brown colour in Brown Oak is caused by a fungus, Fistulina hepatica, which dies when the tree is converted to timber. It is much sought-after by independent furniture makers, although is too varied to be of much interest to the mass-producer, who prefers their wood to be as homogeneous as possible.

Most people prefer to have a matching set of the same timber, while some prefer to start their collection of different woods. Let me know if you wish to be notified when I add new woods to the range.

Square; 90 x 90mm

Weight: 30 gm

Care Instructions:

After testing many finishes, I have only found one that still looks good after a glass has stood in red wine on it for half an hour. Even so, wipe spillages dry and do not put them in the dishwasher.
Clean with warm soapy water as necessary.


The first coasters I made were for a customer who had purchased a Yew table and wanted some coasters to go with it. Fortunately, I still had a few offcuts from making the table. As is so often the case, the small offcuts were even more amazing than anything in the table but too irregular to use in anything large.

This Brown Oak comes from the Staunton Harold Estate on the Derbyshire/Leicestershire Border. They have a small sawmill on-site where they saw and dry selected trees from their estate. It is the sort of old-barn-in-the-woods that you probably imagine when you picture a traditional sawmill.
