Biltmore Estate Live Edge White Oak
Biltmore Estate live edge white oak #2 is a gorgeous slab of old growth White Oak.
Part of a timber grant given to urban conservation groups in Asheville, NC. This particular tree was saved for table tops, the first of which went into a private collection.
The tree that yielded 5 slabs is over 400 years old.
Using old growth, hand hewn timbers to make bases is something I’ve been playing around with. Having an affection for old chisels and mallets gives me the chance to re use these pieces of history.
