What we have been up to!

Current project: Tree den

We are currently making one of our tree den's for a boy's bedroom to allow use and access to a mezzanine level study space. Trunk will provide book storage on one side and stairs on the other whilst branches encase the mezzanine for safety.

Latest commissioned project

Two cabinets commissioned by a local client for their dining room. Made from tulip wood and painted with a distressed finish.

Black walnut dining table

Dining table commissioned by a couple in London made in sections so it could be delivered to an apartment with minimal access. Table legs were carved by hand from solid walnut sections and the insides blackened using a burning technique. Table stained in dark oil to provide a rich, dark colour to match interior.

Oak shelving unit

Bespoke shelving unit designed to replace a staircase banister and provide storage for books and create a screen at the same time.

Same client as above came to us with wood from a fallen tree in their garden also wanting a large console for their spacious hallway. Design was worked around oak supplied. Please see here for further info.


Surrounded by the characteristic chalky hills and rolling farmlands of Wiltshire the workshop sits on the edge of the North Wessex Downs AONB in the village of Lydeway. The area is known for its natural beauty, scenic views and woodlands, not to mention it’s historic monuments. With all this on our door step it’s hard not to be inspired! Call or email if you have a project you would like to discuss.
