Down in the Wylde Wood Workshop......

I've lived in Wales all my life and Welsh is my first language. I have lived in South, North and now in West Wales. I am fortunate enough to be able to practice my craft down in the wild woodlands of West Wales. I source most of the timber here in the woodlands where I work. The way I manage the woodlands is by the process of coppice rotation. This means I have a constant supply of timber. The coppice contains stands of ash, hazel, birch, willow, rowan, hawthorn, oak, hornbeam, beech and wych elm. This winter we aim to plant 300 sweet chestnut. I prefer to make furniture the traditional way using mortice and tenon joints and turn products on a viking lathe after using the draw knife on the shave horse. The products I make can't easily be found on the high street. When you buy from my shop you cut out the middle man and you buy direct meaning you get more value for your money as there is no other profit margin added on by anyone else. Thanks for your support, it means we can carry on managing the woodlands in this age old way.
