I loved it was exactly what I asked for, however it arrived a week later than I expected so sadly could not give it to him before he left, ill have to give it to him when he returns in a year. Would have been 5 stars if it had arrived on time.

About

The coppicing came first

The coppicing came first. My products bore out of a hate of waste and ever increasing piles of wood! I spend my winters restoring a local 9 acre ancient semi natural woodland, turning the dark, dank, unhealthy hazel wood into healthy tree’s, letting the light in to aid other woodland flora to flourish and providing food and habitat for a variety of wildlife. I do this for free. The money the business makes is from the products I sell only.

For the most part, I can tell you exactly which woodland the item you have purchased originally came from! If it’s made from Hazel I can practically take you to the tree itself! Although practical, my products are mostly bought emotionally, customers fall in love with a particular piece that resonates with them and knowing the history of the piece is part of that love affair. Even the pieces that I make from bought in wood have a history; the local timber yard I buy from will know the woodland it came out of or the country of origin. Even the reclamation yard I buy my reclaimed wood for has a story, it’s a social enterprise which teach adults with learning difficulties woodworking.

Trained by my father, Cottage Coppicing started off as just an interest in the outdoors which then led to coppicing, and in turn to woodworking, (with slight digressions into green woodworking, and willow weaving!) Today, Cottage Coppicing is an amalgamation of a number of traditional rural skills and contemporary crafts.

My life has become very seasonal. My winters are spent in the woods, coppicing in the traditional manner with handheld tools, creating both a 'wood crop' and a natural habitat for many woodland flora and fauna. Spring and summer are when I move into the workshop and get creative; working with both the wood I have removed from the woodland and other bought in and reclaimed hardwoods.
