Wilf ‘Squirrelman’ Hutchinson Oak 4’ Octagonal Dining Table

Stock ref: DS1058

Circa 1957 - 1960

A superbly waxed and patinated dining table, one of the first made by Wilf after he left R. Thompson’s to set up Squirrel Woodcarvers in 1957. Features a 2 plank adzed top, dowelled centrally through the top in line with early craftsmanship, on a cruciform base with very prominent early squirrel carving to the foot. ( The squirrel has been lightly chewed by the original owners pet dog but is still clearly distinguishable.) Sourced locally in Bedale.

The colour, graining, patination and deeply waxed finish, on the top in particular, is simply stunning !

Size: 118 - 122 (dia) x 72(h) cm

The 4 chairs made originally for this table were sold on ebay in Jan, wrongly described as 1940’s by the seller !
