Traditionally the Havwoods’ MiPlank range has focused on wider boards, since a construction of multiple layers of the same wood results in a particularly stable plank, but the half dozen most recent additions to this range are quite different. Made from six layers of oak, instead of the more usual three, their beauty is rooted in amazing use of traditional hand-working techniques rather than imposing size.

Inspired by the stories from cabinetmakers met in a journey along the trail of castles on the Loire, these boards have been created by combining a knowledge of art history and contemporary design. Entirely hand worked, they make extensive use of planing, bevelling and brushing, with natural oils to emphasise the colour and grain, as well as knots and irregularities which in other floors might be considered flaws. For example, Morley emphasises natural discolourations and irregularities with light grooving and brushing to resemble a floor grizzled by time. In both Kinnerton and Frensham the knots are hero, emphasised in the former with oils and the latter with cracks and drilling; Donnelly is a heavily aged rustic style with pinprick holes imitating woodworm, Boswell imitates a craftsman’s repair work and Rigden is hand burnt to produce colours which range from black to golden brown. All are truly different and capable of adding an entirely new dimension to an interior.
