So pleased we are now able to share our pieces that we were commissioned to make for @katieboyle04 wedding!!! 🙌🤙
We were approached and asked if we could make a round oak cake stand....this one was a challenge i happily accepted as i had to work out a way to make a rectangular thick piece of reclaimed oak work top into a 14" round piece. 🤔
The joy that is YouTube showed me the way to use a table saw (yes thats right! A piece of machinery that is used for cutting nice straight lines to cut a round profile!!!) After making up a jig i was able to start the process of turning a rectangle to a circle (see the pics towards the end of the process, so crazy!).
Bare in mind there was no trials, this was a first attempt nailed as i only had 1 piece of oak big enough to make a 14" board.
To make it easy to lift the cake up i made another jig to router in some handles in the rear, they came out a treat too! Finished the piece with all edges getting fillets and chamfers to soften the oak.
Then over to the art dept were Rach (aka the steadiest hand in the northeast) burnt in the design in around circumference so it would frame around the cake when in position. We kept the stag theme running with this piece and included some antlers in the design 👌.
We're looking forward to getting some pics sent through which we'll post up with the cake in place 👍 . #weddingsurprise#weddingcake#weddingcakestand#stag#antlers#handmade#makingacircle
(English below👇) Ein noch etwas unbekannter aber definitiv sehenswerter Naturpark im Süden Ungarns ist der #gemencierdő 🌲🌲🦌🐗 Der Auwald existiert bereits seit der letzten Eiszeit und ist bis heute nahezu unberührt! Mit seinen 710 Quadratkilometern ist er der größte Auwald Europas! In ihm leben u.a. zahlreiche wildlebende Gemenc Hirsche, die vor allem aufgrund ihrer Geweihgröße einzigartig auf dieser Welt sind. Wir machten hier einen mehrstündigen Halt auf dem Weg Richtung Serbien und können es euch wirklich empfehlen 😉

On our way to Serbia we stopped over at this beautyful nature park in the south of #hungary ! The park isn’t very touristic and in nature and wildlife unique in the world. It already exists since the last ice age and gives shelter to a lot of wildlifing animals as for example the #gemenc#deer which has one of the biggest #antlers worldwide. With its 710 square meters Gemenc Erdö is the largest #floodplain#forest in #europe !We can really recommend this place!
Ha! At least we have next month to enjoy to.
Minus the horrific event happening to this country.
Jog on your posh idiots. You cant eat money as food. This is gunna be mental. At least we have some things we can trust. Find the antlers wearing.

Detail of bees on antlers with white flowers. Still my favourite. Coins have been found from Mesopotamia that have bees on one side and antlers on the other. Believed to be depicting Pan as the God and protector of all Nature.
I didn't know that before painting bees and antlers and women with antlers with bees on them. Weird! The other day I came across this root source of the word "weird" ~ comes from an old Ango Saxon word meaning "spiritual" and "related to fate" ♡ #bees#ancient#beliefs#antlers#pan#protector
Photo by @bertiegregory | A bull moose feeds on willow bushes on the west coast of the Hudson Bay, Manitoba, Canada. The biggest bulls can grow antlers that are 6ft across weighing more than 40lbs. Like other members of the Cervidae (deer) family, moose grow and shed their antlers each year, with all this growth occurring in a just a 5-month period. Having the biggest antlers helps males achieve reproductive success. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures. #wild_life#animals#moose#willow#antlers
