Workshop

Living with wood: This section is about where we work, our workshop & showroom and the techniques we use to make our fine furniture. From here there are links to pages about the wood we use and converting locally grown trunks into planks with our sawmill .

Beech table

Commissioned furniture: Most of our work is making bespoke contemporary hardwood furniture from locally grown timber. In this section there is information on how to commission a piece of furniture and links to photographs of some examples of furniture we have made.

Online Shop

Online Shop: We have a small range of popular items of furniture and accessories which we make in small batches, and which are normally available for quick dispatch. At the moment we offer: a range of coat hangers, book racks, circular coffee tables, bookends, hat & coat hooks and chopping boards made from Ash and Beech. For those looking to buy some kiln dried planks for a project we now have a small stock of homegrown hardwood planks and woodturning blanks.

Solar kiln

Solar Kiln: After sawmilling, the planks undergo two stages of seasoning, "air drying" followed by "kiln drying". The kiln drying removes the correct amount of moisture from the planks so they are ready to be made into furniture suitable for a centrally heated home. Conventional kilns are heated with fossil fuels. We use a solar powered kiln which apart from using little energy, dries the planks thoroughly - essential for fine furniture.
