porte de jardin

Solid Oak front garden gate with wavy pickets. Fully jointed and dowelled.

rustique bushcrafted garden gate

This range of gates remind me of the 'Wind In The Willows' but naturally evolved because of our ethos of ecology making the best use of the material at hand. The shapes are dictated by the natural curvature of the slab sawn oak bows with only minimun shaping with our trusty drawknife just as you would expect from woodland crafts.

Bespoke Boxes

purple heart accents box  with cherry panneling

Boxes made to any size in traditonal or comtempary designs such as this Purpleheart accented design. Boxmaking is a skill which requires high levels of skill and accuracy whether we use handcut Dovetails or hidden jointing. We accept international orders and worldwide delivery. More information here.


Chene barriere de rustique,  rustic gate made with  old slab sawn timber

These Oak shoot bolts are chunky but work perfectly with no fiddling. They look the part fitted to our Oak gates. 'Woodmongery' is a new word just invented by me and will be entered into the Oxford dictionary alongside 'Dumbphone'.

Composting Toilets

Composting wally dog compost  sawdust toilet

Any design made to order and at reasonable cost. Our 'Wally' doesn't quite have the knack of it's funtion but I assure you it is self explanatory. These toilet designs lend themselves to the sawdust principle.

We power our machines using ecological power harnassed from the wind and sun. Our hot water is heated by the sun. We believe that it is important to recycle and re-use as much within our home as possible. We dug our well but also processed the diggings and used them in the renovation of our farmhouse.

Did you know? that sandpaper is a recent development and fine furniture makers and artisans alike would use handtools such as a 'smoothing Plane' or a hand scraper to produce fine finishes. I too use handtools alongside my machines as the saving in power and the superior finish is so rewarding.


Robert Healey is a registered Artisan and we are happy to recormend him to intall our products. Robert (Bob) has been in the trade for many years which is beneficial when working on these old French houses.
