oak / chestnut post and rail fence
The brief for this oak and chestnut fence was to keep their dogs in; to see through to the rather lovely beech hedge behind and to be an organic and beautiful feature.
The posts are green oak, sourced and milled locally to the client. The chestnut pales were sourced from a sustainably coppiced woodland owned by a local tree surgeon and cleft in two. The chestnut rails have axe hewn tenons that fit snugly into the morticed oak posts to provide a strong structure that will last for years.
Over time the fence will gain that silver colouring only achieved by natural weathering.
