It's simply ingrained into everything we do at Country Ways Oak. We aim to create the highest quality handmade oak furniture, using time-honoured woodworking techniques.
Using traditional tools such as tenon saws ,mallets and chisels, each piece of Country Ways Oak furniture is constructed with sturdy pegged mortice and tenon joints, assembled without the need for glue, to deliver strength and durability.
Our highly-skilled craftsmen strive to create bespoke furniture of charm and character-furniture which will stand the test of time.
Care for the environment
We care passionately about the natural woodland environment, both here and around the world and therefore only use oak from sustainable and professionally managed sources.
Oak remains a living breathing material, even when it has been sawn into rough planks for working. It needs kiln drying and storage to ensure it is in perfect condition before our craftsmen create the very finest handmade furniture.
Many of the choices that we offer in our showrooms are now available to you when you purchase from this website, you may choose from different grades of oak, also whether you would like your furniture aged, and in what colour?
Our furniture is made from natural solid timbers available in two grades. First quality and character grade. Character grade is the default grade and our standard prices are based on this grade of oak.
Leg and handle options
Many tables have a choice of leg shapes and carvings to the side rails. If you decide on an English Oak handmade cabinet you may choose your door panel shape, door hinges, and finally select your door handles and drawer handles.
Character grade is predominately used due to the interesting grain patterns and attractive knots, if your requirements are for a more contemporary, cleaner and uniform design then please specify first quality grade which attracts a premium of 20% above standard price.
