• The Wonders of Wood

    It all happened back in 2011 I’d been trying to think of ways to utilise the hazel in our field, fed up with seeing the Massey Ferguson with its huge hedge cutter on the back shredding the life out of this wonderful hedge keeping its nice uniform line in our rural parts.

    Whilst having a pint one winters evening in our local a friend said to me why not have go at making some nice thumb sticks and hurdles so I had a go and you might say I’ve got the bug.

    Word seems to have got around about what we are doing orders seem to be coming in month on month, our hurdles were seen at the Abergavenny food festival and sparked some interest from a French cheese company which all sounds very exciting.

    I have lots of new projects under way from chopping boards to welly boot holders and much more.

    I will keep you all posted on how things are going

    Best Wishes
