One Of A Kind

In the last two years I have tried to master the patch table effect (see the large image). During this period I have worked and tried different materials. Both epoxy as well as timber. I have been able to reduce working time and increase the quality of the tables. This has lead me to reduce the price of tables I am making. They come with an original Rudolf Wortmann certificate. With a unique number as well as information about the table and materials used. All timber I use can be traced back to Irish trees and on request I can supply a report of the exact place the tree once stood. Please visit my website, There are tables that can still be delivered or even made before Christmas. See my table gallery

ORIGIN

Kilmurry


Kilmurry is a small area in the north of of Gorey township in county Wexford, Ireland. Wexford is a rural county, made up of hilly landscapes, coastal cliffs and sandy shores which is located in the sunny southeast of Ireland. This inspiring and relaxed region of Ireland continues to stimulate everything I make and do. It taught me the importance of creating timeless and functional furniture , that can be used in any home, wherever that may be.

Design


Whether you want a personally designed piece of furniture, a specific design in mind, together we can design your ultimate piece of furniture. I encourage for people who have specific designs in mind to contact me. This also applies if you would like to use your own materials, such as an old piece of furniture or for example floorboards from your house. Or if you would like to have an object 'sunk' into epoxy..

Materials

  At the moment I use any type of wood, steel and epoxy. Your design can include all or any mix. We source all our timber from local Irish trees. If you would like we can supply a tree certificate with each product, stating the tree spieces, calculated age, geographic location and when the tree was felled. Irish most common (native) trees include oak, ash, hazel, birch, Scots pine, rowan and willow. beech, sycamore, and fir have been introduced to Ireland. I use a lot of Irish wood, like Oak Beech, Elm and Chestnut and sycamore.I have different suppliers for our steel table legs and other furnishing accessories. Most of those suppliers are small The epoxy is sourced in Germany.

Colour and Finish

As One Of A Kind stands for a unique and high quality product. Each piece of timber is different, as is every mixed epoxy pour. The finish can be different as well. The timber, epoxy and the finish of the product has a specific influence on how your clock or table will look like.
I finish my projects with lacquers, oils, waxes or a combination of those. If you wish your wood to be stained then thats no problem either.

WHO IS OOAK?

RUDOLF WORTMANN

I moved from the Netherlands to Ireland in 1995. Over the years I have setteld in and have become more and more interested in creating furniture from local sourced material. And as I have alsways enjoyed nature and woodworking, in 2022 I decided to setup my own workshop."Working with wood relaxes me, it's inspiring. As is the surrounding area I live in."

One of the moments I look forward to is selecting timber, looking at different types of Wood from different trees and their different characteristics. And when working with them watch the colours come to life when treated with different oils, wax or varnish.

My family are artistic and i think I got some of those genes. In 1985 I learned different woodworking techniques as well as working with woodworking tools and machines, which started my love to work with wood. - Creating and see what develops. It stimulates me and is every time again as exciting as the first piece of timber I worked with.
