Our traditional Welsh Stick Chairs are made from Elm, Oak and Ash.
Elm is used for the seat, arms and crest because it has great resistance to splitting and will remain intact when holes are made to take the legs and back sticks.
Oak, being very sturdy, is used for the legs as this is where the strength is required and Ash has flexibility so is best used for the sticks.
The magnificent Curule Chair is made from strong Oak with a remarkably comfortable Cowhide seat.
All our native hardwoods are from a traceable, renewable source, other than the Elm, of which I have a stock, saved from the ravages of dutch elm disease.
Our chairs are hand finished using shellac and wax, or oil as appropriate.
They can also be painted or supplied in the raw for finishing at home.
Chairs can be made in many other different hardwoods such as Yew, Sycamore, Chestnut, etc., though costs will vary. I tend not to use pine.
