*SOLD* Lions, tiger oak and bears, oh my! This stately antique dresser stands out strong in the furniture jungle. Like it’s namesake, this piece is strong, standing to tell it’s story throughout time. This stunning striped oak was created by American woodworkers, who discovered that quartered oak reveals an array of eye catching flecks in wood. This new technique gave way to coin the term ‘tiger’s eye oak.’ These 19th century tradespeople had also discovered notable advancements in finishing wood. Namely, the creation of the infamous yellow ochre shellac, giving birth to the ‘Golden Oak’ period in furniture. These stripes and golden ochre have withstood the test of time, as this piece is in fantastic shape with completely functional drawers, a detachable mirror and amazing claw front feet. $325 tames this tiger for your very own junglow companion. 23” x 32” x 48”. Mirror adds 34” in height, and is completely detachable without a trace if needed. Delivery available within Nashville for an additional fee. Vintage French tassels not included.
Prussia, Saskatchewan was the name of my hometown before 1917. I wonder what business Mr. B Wilence was in. This quick fix has been on my list for at least 5 years...my sis really hung in there. She might refinish it; it's a sentimental piece that was in my dad's office for years in this condition. I'm happy it's done, happier to not have to take it from here. The quality? Nothing a man on a galloping horse would notice!
I’m finally getting round to photographing some of my work, to put up for sale on my website (hopefully I’ll get the site done soon).
Here are two modern mid century bedside tables/night stands, made out of locally sourced solid brown/tiger oak with power carved drawer fronts made out of ash to accent the beautiful brown oak. Two push to open drawers with half blind dovetails also out of ash.
I really love brown oak, it’s by far my favourite wood, not so easy to get hold of with this figure.
It usually looks more like tiger stripes hence the name but where I work and live trees aren’t grown to be made into lumber, more just there for all the hunting so not groomed to be straight which makes for some beautiful grain but makes it a prick to work with! …like stroking a cat backwards with a rubber glove on.
This beautiful oak comes from a fungus, Fistulina hepatica, which attacks the roots of the trees, causing the wood to assume a chocolate brown hue which often appears as streaks rising up from the base of the tree and tapering out further up the trunk which will kill the tree. Easy to see by the mushrooms at the base of the trunk, it’s unique to UK, whilst in Europe the oak turns pink for the more feminine maker.
Ironic that such beauty comes from disease, more so that I get such a kick out of working with such imperfections being a perfectionist. 🌲🖖😎🖖🌲——————————————— #midcenturymodern#bedsidetable#nightstands#brownoak#tigeroak#ashwood#powercarving#halfblinddovetails#solidwood#handmadefurniture#furnituremaker#madeintheuk#furnituremaker#hewandawe
