9 Ft dining table made in English oak from Redditch, with one of its legs coming from a holly tree in Windermere.

Carvings in English lime wood.

Finished in Sikkens Cetol HLS and light waxing.

This particular table was made to commission by John Cleese and the original enquiry went as follows:

Phone Conversation:
“Hello Derek, You have probably heard I am having a divorce -- my wife is running off with the HIPPO TABLE you made me, so can you make me another please – and while you are at it can you do me a DINING TABLE”
- “Yes of course, what sort of things do you like?”
“I’m very fond of WOODLAND ANIMALS”

Mr Cleese was very happy with his new table and a similar one can be made to your own requirements.
