Looking for something special for a loved one?

Inspired by some really cringe-worthy sentiment advertised on Facebook, we thought we would offer personalised wooden watches with a more realistic sentiment! This one reads:Dad, You’ve got me, so you don’t reallyneed anything else, but I thoughtI’d get you a watch to help youpick me up on time.Love {name here} Other phrases are available:Or you can make up your own Mum: In thanks for all you do; for all the meals you cook, I bought…

Personalisation (we’ll write on stuff)

If you would like us to write on any product, we can now write on nearly everything1! We can pyrograph (burn by hand), this is rustic and uneven, but has character, or we can laser engrave (much smarter) The cost for for pyrography is £2 (unless it’s an essay!) The laser is £5 to set up plus 1p/mm2 (so the pen shown was £7.25) Here’s the back of a watch we can even write on…

Looking for the wood in the trees

Just doing a little homework.  We are always looking for inspiration and new ideas. Did you know that this year we have increased the range of our own designed unique products to 110.  That’s not saying our other products are exactly common, from wooden ties to wooden roses, there is not much that cannot be made from wood and as we’ve been open over 25 years we’ve built up quite a range. for instance, we…

Wooden Watches – light and cool

The ones shown have our own design on. – I just wanted to say the classic line ‘I have the best job in the world – I just sit around all day making faces!’ We have ones with leather or canvas straps for £49 and ones with fully segmented wooden straps for £88.99 ..or if you want one for a…

Keep your eyes peeled for the Old Forest Folk

There’s a lot of Old Forest Folk can be seen in the New Forest: First, there’s Old Mob; if you meet him down one of the forest rides, I’d suggest you don’t stop to ask directions! Then there’s the Wise Woman, but don’t trust the mushrooms she’s picking, we’re not sure she’s that wise! The woodsman is OK, just don’t sneak up behind him, anyone who uses two axes can’t be that stable (but he…

For VERY naughty children

We have a range of sand timers, these are all made from recycled bobbins (from English wool mills) The wood is at least a couple of hundred years old, with beaten pewter around the rims. The smallest is 3 minutes, the rest on the lower shelf are 5 minutes, including the taller ‘bubble’ timer where the sand-glass itself raises to the top, whilst dropping sand. On the top shelf they are all hour-glasses (with black…

The story of a little wooden pebble and it’s trip to the smoke

We had a lady phone us: “Do you still have any of those wooden pebbles, only I’m going to London and I’ve lost mine!”  After assuring her we had plenty she finished the conversation saying she’ be straight in. Slightly bemused, we waited and sure enough about half an hour later a lady came in, “I’ve come for a pebble, my train’s at 4 “.  After rummaging1 through our pile of pebbles, she deferentially placed…
