We would love to hear from you so please contact us to discuss a new commission or refurbishing your own furniture


Look at our work

We work mainly to commission, producing one off pieces based around our clients’ own ideas. We endeavour to work with Scottish sourced hardwoods – most often trees that have succumbed to Scotland’s harsh blasts of weather. We are happy however to work in wood from around the world where required. Click on the pictures to look at our selection of work.

Our Portfolio


Bring your dream to life

When you decide to commission a piece, we will arrange meetings firstly to discuss your ideas and then to go through our sketch designs and a price quote for your approval. Before commencing work, we ask for a deposit, normally 50% of the agreed price, with the balance being payable on delivery.

What our clients say…


"Mike has a natural design sense which captures the elegance and sensitivity that matches his demeanour.  His understanding of materials, functionality and traditional woodworking is only exceeded by his artistic vision.  I am sure Mike's work will be coveted by collectors around the world in years to come."

Scott Grove Designer, Craftsman, Tutor New York, US May 14, 2016

"I commissioned Ochre & Wood to design and craft a kitchen table, benches and carvers. The whole experience was positive, particularly choosing the wood, discussing and selecting the designs and finally, taking delivery of wonderful products which are even better than I could have imagined. I can strongly recommend Ochre & Wood."

"We are delighted with the bookcase you made for our daughter.  It is an ideal 21st birthday present which she will treasure for life. As well as being versatile, I had no idea it would be possible to introduce such an interesting design style to an otherwise "simple" piece of furniture.  Well done!"

Christine Tacon Macclesfield March 1, 2017

"I am writing to thank you for the lovely keepsake box.  It has been much admired (quite rightly) and I'm enjoying its presence in my study."

Elizabeth Moignard Glasgow May 15, 2017

"We are delighted with our new display unit which is exactly what we wanted.  The Scottish Oak is beautiful and your craftsmanship and attention to detail is absolutely amazing.   It looks like the unit has been in its place for ever and actually makes the room look wider.  

Beautiful job - well done! We will have no hesitation in recommending your work to anyone."

Mr & Mrs Donald Aberdeen April 8, 2018
