Beating A stunning Technique


From Metal To Wood


Each stroke of the hammer must be just hard enough, but just soft enough.  Transferring this traditional metalworking technique to wood gives an new tactile feel and surprising look

Each of the thousand odd hammer strokes on this surface must be done by hand, one at a time and only once the wood has been polished.  If you make a mistake it can’t be repaired.

Each stroke of the hammer must be hard enough to leave an impression, but not so hard as to crack the polish;

but what a finish.

I am using this old metalwork technique in a surprising way with wood with fantastic effect
