These are some grown Ash bends split along the grain and tidied up on the saw. They will take about 6 months to dry. To be made into a new chair design.
I will be at Blackthorpe barn this weekend. It’s just off the A14 east of Bury St Edmunds. All British crafts. www.blackthorpebarn.com

Very similar to the No1 chair, but made in Sweet Chestnut, and with some small changes in the design.
Here is a Dan Hussey chair that went to France 20 years ago, an early version of the No1 chair in Ash. It has moved house 3 times and is used everyday.
Ash stool under construction has round wedged tenons on the top.
15 inches diameter, height 18 inches
Ash wood has a big difference between the spring and summer growth producing grainy patterns. On this Armchair the light grey stain finish helps to show the attractive patterns. Ash is a very hard wearing unfussy material.
Some lovely Sweet Chestnut in this Armchair just finished £575
Looking forward to showing my chairs at the Westleton Wild Flower Festival Sunday 29th July 2018
