Newly designed and crafted, this unique Ireland Australia gift is the perfect personalised piece for anyone with a connection to Ireland, and Australia! Handcrafted by Furniture Designer-Maker and Woodturner Cian Magill, it holds a truly fascinating story. It is made from an Oregon/ Big-Leaf Maple tree that lived in the Library Square, on the Trinity College Dublin grounds since ca. 1845.
Native to the Pacific Northwest of America and Canada, the 175 year-old Maple displays beautiful and rare ‘figured’ grain details such as ‘spalting’ and ‘cats-paw’ burl. Shimmering ‘Curly Maple’ streaks are also visible.
‘Spalting’ is any form of wood colouration caused by fungi, and is sought after by woodworkers for it’s unique patterns. ‘Cats-paw’ is a type of burl wood where little dots form in a pattern. The grain surrounding these dots is usually particularly interesting, as it twists and glistens off light.
Finished in natural linseed oil with respect, care, and love.
The location and family name can be personalised to anything you wish. Simply let me know in the info box on checkout. The map also comes with a screen-printed, Fairtrade cotton bag, and a Celtic style info card.
* Sale + Free Worldwide Shipping for a Limited time only!*
Note: creations are made to order so grain details will vary, giving each piece it’s own personality. You can be assured that whoever you have in mind for this piece will be smitten by it’s rareness and beauty!
I can also make a different version of this piece, with any other countries required.
