3D Wood – Nick Speakman

News from Jan/Feb

I was invited by a London designer to work at Chilham Castle, Canterbury Kent to project manage a landscape design, using felled timber from an ancient Oak. I employed Rob Dyer from http://www.alaskanmill.co.uk/ to mill the harvested tree to allow me to carve on site and construct and design a 12 metre arced bench which now takes in the stunning views from the lawn at the castle.

An Olympic standard cross country horse jump was also carved from some of the timber on site.

Stump Jobs

Various onsite carvings have been carried out in customers’ trees and stumps: Oak, Cedar, larch, eucalyptus. Owls are a customer driven reoccurring theme.
