Ancient Cathedral Oak crafted into Woodworked Objects

Today we’ve been speaking to Ron Sheridan, a craftsman from Grantham about his plans for Saturday’s #1000ytc. As well as demonstrating his woodworking crafts within the Castle grounds Ron will also be selling some unique objects of particular historic interest.

A small number of letter openers, heart necklaces, bottle stoppers and key rings have been made by Ron - exclusively for 1000 Years of Traditional Crafts. These items were crafted using a very special and ancient piece of Oak; a 1,000 year old piece of timber from the roof of Lincoln Cathedral!

Ron was delighted to be able to work with such a special piece of Lincoln’s history and will be donating a share of his profits from the sale of the oak items to the Lincoln Cathedral fund.
