Oak is widely known to symbolise strength and endurance. It's a hugely popular hardwood used in furniture and building. Oak has an intricate grain with lighter medullary rays that are often still visible even in the darkest, most worn pieces of wood. Of all our woods, oak is the one we inlay the most. We source it from local carpenters and tree surgeons and at the moment we are using some from some Cornish floorboards.
