A rectangular refectory style coffee table with a 2 plank top, taper shaped end supports leading down to sledge feet and a traditionally pegged central stretcher. All visible parts have been adzed. Trademark Lizard carving in the centre of the stretcher. Honey coloured oak and presented in excellent condition with solid joints, free from damage, staining and ring marks.

Derek trained at Acorn Industries, later working at Crayke near Easingwold. His early solo work featured a fish trademark, changing to a lizard when he joined forces with Martin ‘Lizardman’ Dutton in the 60‘s. Both had similar profound sensory impairments and they worked well together. Their lizard carvings are distinguishable from one another.
