Everything that i make is from recycled and reclaimed timbers


After being in the construction industry for over 40 years, i was surprised with the amount of timber, amongst other things that were being thrown away on new builds and remodeling of older properties, so i decided that this was a lot of waste that could possibly be given another life! So the journey began, Ive always had a interest in making things with timber, and my first hit on this was making planters and wall art out of pallets, which seemed to be popular with family, friends and neighbours. I got the bug and started to hunt for different types of timber, and would find myself scouring skips and local builders for any timber being thrown away. this proved to be a hit as i was getting a lot of old hardwood products including flooring-windows-joists. Oak, Beech, Sapele, Ash and Iroko were the most common timbers that i started to collect. So i started making different items like coasters-candle holders-cheese boards-charcuterie board-chopping boards-platter boards and various seasonal items, all of which i sold or gave as gifts to family and friends. Prompted by wife and friends, they have suggested that i should go into the world of Craft Fairs, so this is an exciting journey for me and i will be having my first one in November
