About WoodstoolCraft

Sales 23
On Etsy since 2020
Video summary: Here are some of the items I put together in my garage/workshop. The footstools are made from scavenged wood and the bird boxes from old pallets.

It all started with a repair

We have two nice footstools at home, both seagrass. One of them got damaged and so I bought some seagrass and made a repair. I had some seagrass left over so I made a stool frame out of wood I found in our local nature reserve. Everyone said how good it looked so I thought maybe I could make some more. I was soon asked to make them as an unusual, but unique, house-warming gift.
Seagrass is quite costly, and only in one colour, so I bought some Jute and tried various patterns and colours. They look good, are comfortable and popular so now I am selling on Etsy. I do have one or two in stock but can make them to order. It takes five to eight working days to select the wood, carve the legs and stretchers, glue and varnish the wood frame and the to weave the top. Seagrass takes slightly longer to weave.

I have recently added many other items to my product range including bird boxes, bug hotels, and tea light holders. Still made with scavenged wood, no two are the same.

    I am retired and love working with wood I have scavenged from local nature reserves and woodlands. As well as rustic footstools woven with jute I am producing Bird boxes, Feeders, Bug Hotels, and Tealight holders all from recycled wood.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

All my products are hand-made and the sizes quoted may well vary slightly. I am happy to send photos with more accurate dimensions if size is critical.

Custom and personalised orders

I am able to customise footstools with variations on weave or colours of Jute. However it will take up to two weeks to create a customised footstool. See my FACEBOOK page for all variations on colours, patterns and materials

Care instructions

Footstools are made from scavenged wood and receive a light, dull, varnish coat. They should not be left near a heat source, such as an open fire, wood stove or hot radiator as the wood may dry out, bend or fracture.

Delivery lead time and stock held

I always have some footstools and bird boxes in stock. Their styles and finishes vary and I am happy to send photos of current stock for you to select. If I do not have the exact colour of footstool you require in stock it will take about 4 days to make one.Please contact me.
