This rather indifferent upload shows three sections of wonderfully aged and texturised oak beams which form the internal structure of the Mast House at Chatham's historical Dockyard. The beams are estimated to be 400 years old, and they are still going strong, much better than Tommy Walsh's MDF.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments following yesterdays upload, all though it was a stand in image, I was very surprised at the amount of interest that it generated.

I have got a visitor from Combat Stress coming to see me today, so I shall be unable to look at and comment on your images for a short period, but I shall endeavour to catch up.

Have a great day, and if possible knock of early for the weekend.

Regards Nathan

I think the black borders are a bit too thick here Nathan, but the composition idea is simple and effective - just how I love stuff. Gets my vote!

The three images are most suited to a triptych, Nathan, and using the peg/nail as a fulcrum on the left works well (the temptation would be to put that in the middle).

I love wood in all its shapes and forms. Here is an example of the durability of well-seasoned timber, and an excellent contrast with reflective, polished mahogany.
