About

Welcome to Tom Thumb Designs

Hello, my name is Richard Cantrell. Thank you for visiting my shop.

Through looking at the objects I have handcrafted, I hope you will understand the enjoyment I get from making things out of reclaimed wood. Every piece of wood is different, and therein lies the challenge of deciding what object to make that will show off the wood in its best form. Nothing is mass produced; each piece of wood is carefully chosen for its purpose.

All the wood I use is saved from the chipper or log pile. I feel it’s the ultimate in recycling – to take a piece of wood that is destined to be destroyed, and season it, then work it, finally to produce an object that can be admired and cherished - hopefully for generations to come.

I hope you have found something that has brought a smile to your face, and I hope you come back often.

    I have been working with wood for over 25 years. I make wooden gifts, wooden toys and interactive models for museums. I supply gift items to National Trust shops in northern England. I use locally-sourced reclaimed hardwood.
