We like to work with locally sourced Scottish hardwoods, such as Oak, Sycamore, Elm and Beech, but we can go further afield to source more exotic timbers. Sustainability is important to us and, we believe, to our clients so we will look for sustainable sources when buying our wood.
Many years ago, furniture and cabinet makers would toil expertly for hours, days and weeks using a wide range of purpose made hand tools. Modern times mean we have machines available to speed up the process. Relying wholly on machines, however, can leave furniture feeling a bit industrial and lifeless. We believe a balance between the old and new ways is the best route to creating furniture which really looks and feels hand-made yet can be completed within a reasonable timeframe and cost.
