Review Oakwood Bases

Discussion in 'Reviews , Video Reviews and Open Book' started by Nap, May 13, 2022.

  1. Nap A Fixture

    Hi everyone

    I was sent a selection of various bases from RICHARD WHARTON who runs Oakwood bases 007-001.jpg

    The pieces were sent packed really well each in individual clear bag , surrounded by the local newspaper , any space in the box was also packed with the pages .......good packing to say the least .

    Richards workbench is full of wood at most times ... Oakwood bench.jpg

    As you see full of various woods in all shapes and sizes .....angled , the tall pyramid type for busts , always happy to meet a customers needs for that one off base as well

    In between doing woody things he is now casting for companies like Foxwood Miniatures....a busy man for sure , attending shows as well including a new one organised by the WHITE ROSE CLUB on 11th June, Galtres Centre, Easingwold, Nr York ....I have no doubt the table will be groaning under the wood selection

    Prices are competitive , and quality is very good indeed , he can if you wish drill the fitment hole in the base (always difficult especially in the angled pieces ...for me at least !!)

    Bases are finely finished with careful sanding and varnishing , adding that final finish in a display of your models

    Lets look at some pics with sizes that Richard sent me

    We all like to have that special base for our figures and I certainly recommend OAKWOOD for both QUALITY and CUSTOMER SERVICE

    Have a look at the other review I did here: https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/oakwood-studio-bases.280411/

    You have the contact details in the pictures on the red felted underside above, he is also on social media www.facebook.com/oakwoodstudio

    Thanks to Richard for the bases they are put to very good use

    Happy basing everyone

    I agree, Richard has been my "go to" supplier of bases since I started painting figures and especially busts again. Always arrive within a few days of ordering.

    Richard has made me a number of bases to order and they have always been of the highest order and keenly priced.
