Whimsical fairy doors, goodes and wares to delight the “wee folk” both inside the home and in the garden

Fairy Hill Woodworks is a spin-off of our fine furniture business, Barrington Hill Studios, located in Banks, Oregon. The inspiration came from our granddaughter, then 5, who wanted to invite a fairy into her home with a fairy door. Not long after, a door appeared on the wall under the desk at the top of the stairs, with a note from Merriweather, a garden fairy, saying how delighted she was to have found a new home. Our grandchildren loved exchanging notes and small treasures with the fairies!

It didn’t take long for parents of friends to ask about doors - and soon Grandpa Bob, the Master Tinker of Fairy Hill Woodworks, was supplying individually crafted fairy doors for friends, fundraisers at the pre-school and elementary schools - as well as for a number of grandparents in search of that unique gift for someone who has everything.

As a result, Fairy Hill Woodworks was officially formed in 2011, and continues to make opening and traditional (non-opening) fairy doors and cottages that spark the imagination. Using fine woodworking techniques, each door and cottage is individually handcrafted from locally gathered hardwoods.(hard maple, walnut, ash) Customized decorations are added using wood dyes, carving, pyrography, hand painted detail and miniature hardware. The doors are finished with multiple coats of an exterior acrylic lacquer, for use inside or out.

At Fairy Hill Woodworks, we treasure the opportunity to offer handcrafted doors for fairies and other wee folks (pixies, tinkers, elves, sprites and others). The wee folk use these doors as portals into the homes of special people who welcome their magic and charm. Each door is handcrafted by our Master Tinker from solid woods – including walnut, cherry, ash, hickory, maple and birch, and built to wee folk specifications. Some are hand-hewn and show the wear of ages on their frames. Others are smooth and rounded. Each is an individual work of art, stained with water-based dyes, sanded, finished with two coats of lacquer, and decorated with brass hinges and various sparklies that delight the wee folk, especially fairies.
