The Muggles Pensieve

A reliable method for non-wizarding folk to store memories. It’s all very well for those high-wizards to store and share memories with their fancy pensieves, but here’s a work-around for the rest of us. It is also sometimes called a memory stick, because it stores your memories and it was made from a stick! a quote form the owner of Down To The Wood We have it it walnut and soon in Maple, they’re all…

Oiling Boards

There is a lot of work preparing these wooden boards, then about 3 hours under the laser, but you still don’t really know what you’ve got until the oil goes on. Perry Bond Just watch this Golden retriever board Each board is a one-off, and they sell quite quickly, so we’re keeping a record of our boards over at Pinterest If there’s an image you would like to see on a board, just leave a…

Alder Animal Coasters

We designed some coasters last year, asked a man with a machine to laser them for me in Oak… when he had finished, he said ‘all done, only I couldn’t get oak, so we used bamboo’ …well we do like I bit of environmentally friendly grass; but it’s not very English, the New Forest is not exactly famous for it’s swathes of bamboo! So earlier this year, we had a chance meeting with another man…

Our first cheese board

We’ve been playing with our new laser a while now, but it’s hard to get it running without the odd hiccup and as images take a long while we usually get a programme crash or the laser not stepping the correct amount. But here is our first success. It took just over 4 hours! New Forest English Oak Otter engraved Cheese Board £35 15″ x 10″ The English Oak; three hundred years to grow, three…

The Tree

Another unique card, written by ourselves; hardly a greetings card, but a card with a message from all trees. When you were young I kept you shaded, kept you fed.As you learned, my gifts were your tools of progress.For shelter and warmth, you’ve always looked to me.We even crossed the oceans together, you and I.Now I feel you have moved on, and do not look at me or love me still,but remember, mine forever is…

Making time

Just finished making our first clock of the year, designed by us, and made in the shop. The multi-layered Forest Fox clock We’ve never found a clock that is suitable for a child that wasn’t, well, childish. A pirate ship might do them for a few years, but they will still outgrow it. What we wanted was a clock that would appeal to any age, but with enough fun for a child. We’ve be open…
