The coppicing came first.

I’m Lisa, maker and owner of Cottage Coppicing.

I started Cottage Coppicing by accident 9 years ago! I never intended to start another business.
In the winter of 2011, I was recuperating from a dog bite received during my then dog walking and pet sitting business. With a shared interest in the outdoors my dad invited me to join him for a couple of days in an NRW woodland that he was restoring into a working hazel coppice. I was hooked!

After the first winter the idea of marking products to sell bore out of a hate of waste and ever-increasing piles of wood!

Fast forward 9 years and I now spend my winters restoring a local 9-acre ancient semi natural woodland, and the rest of the year in my industrial unit making the products you find in my shop. Everything is made by me. Self-taught or should I say ‘Dad-taught’ I really took to woodworking and wish I’d taken it up earlier.

Sustainability is important to me. All the wood used in my work is from either sustainable sources or FSC certified businesses. Round wood such as hazel, ash and cherry is mainly coppiced by myself in the woodland I manage, I occasionally buy in branch wood from local tree surgeons from small garden jobs. The ash and oak timber I use is mainly from my local timber yard Wentwood Timber and any American white oak or beech I use is from FSC certified Mon Timber Supplies. 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 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 timber 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 from has a story; a social enterprise which teaches woodworking to adults with learning difficulties.

Please take a look through my shop - new products are added regularly. If you can’t find what you are looking for do message me and I will try my best to help, if I can’t, I might be able to point you in the direction of someone who can.
