Showcasing some of their latest finds at London Design Fair are Whetstone Oak, a wood sourcing company that specialises in making bespoke furniture. Specialists in finding unique woods, their aim is to put this natural resource to practical use, with minimal use of materials.
James Ransley, the founder of Whetstone Oak, learned woodworking techniques from his father and grandfather. It was while working at the family's oak framing business that he developed his skills and began creating products of his own.
Whetstone Oak aims to source exceptional timber from the UK and around the world and transform these unusual pieces of wood into functional everyday products. Given this ability to source the greatest finds and tailor products individually, Whetstone Oak have collaborated with a number of leading designers and architects who seek out unique pieces to add to their spaces. Their products include tables, side tables, consoles and credenzas.
