Stunning Chair Carved From A Single Oak Stump By Alex Johnson (10 Pics)

Carving wood is a two-way street: while you might have a clear vision of what you want to create, the wood’s knots and grain will often force you to adapt. That’s why this chair, carved by Alex Johnson from a single brown oak stump, is so impressive.

Johnson spent six months working on the chair in 2014, while on a seasonal residency. The tree was felled by Paul Berry, “a fifth generation timber man,” and the remainder of the tree was milled by Mouse Pritchard-Barrett of Drywood Ltd. It was shown at the Alde Valley Spring Festival.

Wonderful piece of work. I have seen some tree stumps re-worked as Chinese tea tables for performing tea ceremonies.
