Your bog oak came from a bog in Co.Tyrone Northern Ireland. Ireland is renowned for producing some of the finest bog oak used by woodworkers.
What is bog oak and bog wood? Four to five thousand years ago forests of oak, yew and pine grew where these bog lands are now today. The remains of those forests are found 4.5m to 6m deep in the bogs. These trees have undergone a great chemical change over the years. The oak changes in colour to black, the yew to a reddish brown and the pine to a golden yellow. It is from the depths of these bogs that the artists get their raw material and inspiration.
