An honest and discreet design. The simplicity is complimented by the European Oak used by Four Corners. It is cut through and through to show the maximum amount of character.
The Quaker Oak Large Bookcase will feature knots, changes in grain and beautiful (medulllary rays) flowering to truly reflect the individuality of Oak trees.
European Oak sourced from the Carpathian Mountains that surround our workshop is used to create the Four Corners Quaker Oak range.
We passionately believe that life is too short for bland uninteresting furniture and that each piece we craft should celebrate the true character and beauty of these Oaks that have grown for up to 300 years.
Our furniture has changes in grain colour and pattern, knots and medullary rays (white flowering). All of this character results in a piece of furniture as unique as the trees it has been crafted from. For more information about the wood we use please click here.
All of our Quaker Oak furniture is simply finished in Danish Oil. This highlights the beauty of the wood as well as feeding and protecting it. For more information about caring for your furniture please click here.
Our experience as cabinet makers has taught us that oak can move as it settles into its new home, we endeavour to keep this to a minimum by using very high quality thick oak veneered panels in key structural areas on some furniture e.g. Extending Tables, Chest of Drawers and Wardrobes.
