About Natural Craft

Through Natural Craft, I am endeavouring to produce sustainable and beautiful wooden items that have been hand-carved by me. I use only natural hardwoods. I only hand-carve the wood and do not use power-carving methods. I use only natural oils and waxes and use no dyes or stains. I hope that the products that I make will last a long time and be treasured for just as long.

Our Wood

We source our wood from a wide range of places. These include timber merchants, who source exotic and native timbers responsibly. I buy a lot of offcuts from woodworkers and buy small pieces of unusual timber from merchants on eBay and other marketplaces. Some timber is reclaimed and I make good use of my younger brother who is a joiner and often has offcuts. Some timber like Hazel, I take sustainably from the hedgerow and some timber is given to me.

Our Finish

We use only natural oils and waxes to finish our items. No varnishes or stains and no synthetic products. The wood is sealed in Danish Oil, which is a blend of natural tree and plant oils which bonds to the wood cells when it cures. After sealing the wood in Danish Oil, I use a Creamed Beeswax to polish the wood and add an extra layer of protection. Creamed Beeswax is a mixture of pure Beeswax and real Turpentine (not synthetic turps).

Caring for Wooden Items

Our finish is very natural and simple. In order to keep a Natural Craft item looking its best and nice and smooth, from time to time it is recommended that you polish it with Creamed Beeswax or a beeswax-based polish.

    Bought as gift, and it has been well received. She wears it as much as I do mine, which is most days!

    Although I bought it sold as bog yew, it was labelled bog oak; however it looks exactly like the photo. I highly recommend these, it is beautifully finished so as not to snag. I have found the twisty shape makes putting up long hair, even with one stick, very easy.

    Beautiful hair sticks! I requested a few 7" hair sticks and got exactly what I wanted! Great communication and fast delivery. Among many different hair stick and fork shops, I must say this one is at the top of my favorites. I think in his work the wood is the big star and the finish keeps the wood beautiful so that some types of wood have a shiney effect to them and seem very glossy. It's just quality handwork and these items will last a long while! Definitely recommend!
