Arboretum Trust Charity Auction

Postby Andy Coates » Wed Sep 15, 2010 8:04 am

Hello all,

I've been so busy of late I haven't been on here much, but I thought some might like to know about the above auction...your own Katie Abbot and Stewart King have pieces in the auction...and there are some fun, original, thought provoking, and downright clever objects all made from the same tiny sections of branch oak...

christmas is coming and they'd make great green gifts!

The ‘Branching Out’ Charity Auction by generous arrangement with BONHAMS is now online at the following URL:

Branching Out is a project of the Liveries Wood Group: the Worshipful Companies of Carpenters, Furniture Makers, Joiners & Ceilers, Turners, and Upholders, ancient Guilds of the City of London.

The Group’s strong interest in wood leads it to support the Arboretum Trust, which is invaluable for environmental conservation, scientific research and education.

The auction is well supported by many famous names who were asked to make an object from a small section of branch oak. Many of the names are from the world of woodturning, but also names you'll know from TV, music, and he Worshipful Company of turners and Carpenters.

If you wish to bid you need to register with

It's in a good cause, and the objects have been lovingly made and all are more than worthy of a place in your homes. Have fun and support a good cause.

Further details can be found at

Please spread the word...many thanks
