Colin ‘Beaverman’ Almack, Oak 3’6” Rectangular Coffee Table

Stock ref: DS1112

Circa 1960s

A superb example of Colin's work, exemplified by the use throughout of individually selected quarter sawn oak timbers, chosen specifically for their fine medullary ray figuring. The  3'6" coffee table features  trestle style waisted end supports with sledge feet, joined by a traditional pegged central stretcher. All visible sections are adzed and the two plank top features the most wonderful natual golden medullary ray figuring i've seen on a coffee table for a long time. It contrasts wonderfully with the aged deep honey colour and patina of the oak. Completely sound with no loose joints, damage or staining.

Size: 106(w) x 409d) x 52.5(h) cm.

Colin Almack was trained and worked at Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson's workshop in Kilburn, but  left in 1960 to set up his own business, Beaver Furniture. Although Colin has died the family business continues today with the same values and traditions, led by his son-in-law David Clegg, himself a master craftsman.
