Well it looks like a block of walnut; it is walnut, just not quite solid. Inside there’s some of that modern wizardry stuff. The time is projected through the wood (yes, really)

Set the alarm, then simply tap the top surface to snooze, or flip it over to turn off alarm (if you can’t see a picture of an alarm clock on the top, then it’s not on.)

)
  • Alarm (flip to turn off)
  • Rechargeble via USB (lasts about a couple of weeks)
  • Can be left on USB
  • Continuous on or touch activated
  • 12h or 24h
  • touch sensitive buttons (through the wood)

Walnut £40
Cherry £40 (awaiting stock)

The Sad Willow greetings card


You will find me drinking at the banks of flowing streams, my memories rushing from me to the sea.
Chew my young twigs to clear your head – remember, I invented aspirin.
My pliable branches made your baskets and your fish-traps before England was an island. Later, I made gunpowder to defend or overthrow our people.  How strange, then, that I am best and far most widely known for defending not your heads from pain, or your bellies from starvation, or your lives from overthrow and death – but defending the stumps of England’s game of gentlemen and players on a Sunday afternoon.

In our quest for unusual and original wooden products, we think we’ve hit gold with this one…

This Walnut book-light is not what is seems:

Open the book to turn it on, leave ajar for a directional light, or open to 360° and magnets snap it into place for a full glow.

Made from walnut plywood with a living wooden hinged spine. Recharged via a usb cable

Walnut with a warm white light
or maple with a cool white light

The Sturdy Oak greetings card


What would England be without me? Your navy were once called ‘The wooden walls of England’. But would those walls have kept the French and Spaniards at bay if it weren’t for my timber that clad the ships and protected  the live hearts beating safe within.
Stout hearted with a broad reach, I grow bigger and live longer than any honest tree in the realm.
What child doesn’t know the wavy shape of my leaves, what man hasn’t been warmed by my flames, or lady sat comfy in an oaken chair? But there’s more: What pig has not been fattened upon my acorns, whose shoe-leather not been tanned by my bark.
I am the oak; I am England.

Designed and written by ourselves

Chopping kindling takes a while, and it’s usually hard on your back as you spend most of the time picking up the pieces.

Simply put some elastic around the log, then you can keep chopping without stopping!

Safer for your fingers and much quicker.
