Wood has very special qualities. With or without a practical purpose it is always decorative. We aim to provide customers with objects that are a delight to use and that can be admired for their beauty. Smooth or textured, natural or coloured, simple or intricate we our aim is to build upon the natural beauty of the wood itself.
We use the natural grain of home grown woods ( cherry, apple, damson, yew, walnut, pear) to produce items which complement the detailed beauty and colouring of the grain. Plainer, home grown woods (sycamore, beech, ash) we may enhance with decorative finishes to produce a more contemporary design.
Whenever exotic woods are used (infrequently) we buy only from companies who support the good forest management scheme initiated by The Timber Trade Federation of the UK. (bubinga, ebony, zebrano, cocobolo, guayacan) With these we produce objects that use the specific qualities, colours and patterns to maximum effect with minimal quantity of the exotic wood used.
