Wood used to make wooden products



Where our materials come from

We source our wood from offcuts, local tree surgeons, and housing renovations, where high quality hardwood is often discarded unnecessarily. In this way almost all of our wood is essentially recycled, and this method of acquiring wood gives us a chance to work with many exotic varieties.

We always make sure the wood is of the highest quality before working on it, and our wooden gifts made in Bristol are made exclusively from quality hard wood.
