Spalted Beech Block

By Alex Brooks

£495.00

The Spalted Beech Block has character and unique charm. Alex Brooks combines fine craftsmanship and attention to detail, creating beautiful 
and timeless pieces of furniture that showcase the splendour of natural wood.  

Highly versatile, it is suitable for use as both a side table and a stool, or as a purely aesthetic and decorative object. With a simple aesthetic, Alex Brooks’ pieces are extremely complex to design and make. The nature of the raw materials in the collection mean that no two pieces are alike. The Spalted Beech Block is individually handcrafted from a single, solid piece of wood that has been sustainably sourced. An exquisite and original design, this stool is crafted from a slice of beech that has been encased in black resin on an MDF cube.

Alex Brooks has been working as a furniture maker for over 16 years. He designs and creates bespoke freestanding solid timber furniture that aims to showcase the origins of wood through their natural patterns and unique surfaces. Operating in Dorset, Alex sustainably sources wood from his dad’s woodland, usually wind fallen timber which he then decides how to cut to accentuate its natural beauty. He prefers to work with large pieces where the colour, textures, natural growth patterns and marks made by the movement of the tree throughout its life can be displayed.
