Handmade Furniture

  • Rustic Wooden Four Poster Bed

    From the woodlands of the Dyfi valley in Mid Wales to the splendour of a thoughtfully designed guest bedroom, here are some photographs of one of our latest Rustic Oak Four Poster Tree Beds, delivered to another happy customer.

    "Hi Susannah, Thought you might like a photo of the bed dressed. We love it! Regards, Jane"

    The wood for our oak four poster beds is carefully selected from the forests surrounding our workshop on the southern edge of Snowdonia. The beds are designed and constructed to retain all of the natural features in the wood, bringing the outdoors in and providing a truly unique focal point in any bedroom.

    All our beds are handmade to order and custom designs are welcomed. Contact Us with your bed ideas.

  • Bespoke Trout Bench

    Commissioned as a surprise 80th birthday present for a fisherman grandfather, this bespoke oak bench features a brown trout and mayfly carving, and personal birthday message from the grandsons.

    Made entirely from oak, this bench is a variation on our Friendship Bench design and will sit happily in the great outdoors, be it next to a river or lake, or in your favourite spot in the garden.

  • Stag Storytelling Chair

    First there was the Rabbit and then came the Owl... now we have the Stag!

    Designed to represent the school emblem of Belmont Community Primary School in Lincolnshire, this latest carved storytelling chair is one of our most dramatic chairs yet. Using a combination of carving and painting, the stag feels almost alive and looks quite at home down by the river.

    We did actually hear recently that a pair of stags were seen in the Welsh hills close to our workshop ....

  • Design your own furniture

    Ever had an idea for a bespoke piece of furniture?

    Perhaps you would like to incorporate your school emblem or motto into a storytelling chair; perhaps you would like to commission a personalised bench in memory of a loved one; or maybe you've been dreaming about waking up in a unique bed of your very own design ...

    Let your imagination be your guide, then we can help turn your ideas into reality.

    The portfolio of our work on-line shows the evolution of our product designs, often led by clients who are looking for something they've never seen anywhere else. A bed inspired by Tim Burton movies; a Woodland Throne designed by a 6th-Form D&T class; a Wise Old Owl bench with inspiring words on ... anything and everything is possible.

    Contact Us now; we look forward to hearing your ideas!

  • Storytelling Chairs for 'Friends of the Schools'

    School PTAs and Friends of Schools groups regularly contact us to buy a storytelling chair or friendship bench for their school with money they have raised through fundraising efforts. A piece of storytelling furniture can be a beautiful gift to leave the school as a legacy and a great contribution to improving the outdoor learning experience for children across all ages.

    Pictured here is a Giant Storytelling Chair that was purchased by the Friends of Beswick School in East Yorkshire. Made entirely from reclaimed oak, this chair will sit happily for decades in the grounds of the school and be enjoyed by generations of pupils.

    Remember that all our prices are inclusive of VAT, so as a school affiliated group be sure to claim back the VAT, and the actual cost to the PTA or Friends of the School will then 17% less :-)

    You can see the full range of our Storytelling Chairs for school here.

  • Sunrise Bed

    Our latest shiny happy sunrise bed! Built for a customer in Angus, Scotland, here's a picture of the bed in its new home.

    "We have received and erected our new bed, love it to bits." Brian

    The Sunrise Bed is a great illustration of how varied beds can be in their design and how effective the use of different coloured woods can be to illustrate a concept.

  • Nightmare Before Christmas Bed

    We actively encourage customers to come to us with their bespoke designs and whacky bed ideas, and every now and again we get a really unusual request ...... If you're familiar with Tim Burton films, then you'll recognise immediately where the inspiration for this incredible bed comes from.

    A previous customer of ours called Sharron was looking for a new bed. Sharron had bought one of our handmade wooden beds before but now wanted a new bed as her mother had fallen in love with the original Constellations Bed and appropriated it.

    Sharron loves Tim Burton films, in particular A Nightmare Before Christmas, and asked us to make her a bed on the theme of Tim Burton's famous movie. That's as far as the brief went; Sharron left the rest of the design up to us, and the bed you see here is what we came up with.

    The design went down really well and Sharron was delighted with the final product:  "Omg it's beautiful thank you so much xx"

    This bed is an excellent example of how any dream can be turned into a reality, so don't be shy to contact us with your crazy bed ideas and we can help make them come true.

  • Disabled Access Compost Toilet for Walled Garden

    We have just delivered and installed this compost toilet with disabled access for a community garden in Mid-Wales. The head gardener at the Ty Glyn Davis Trust Holiday Centre was looking for a waterless toilet to replace the ugly blue Portaloo that was at the entrance to their beautiful walled garden. The Trust provides fully accessible self-catering holiday accommodation for people with special needs and so our disabled access toilet was the perfect solution.

    The compost toilet has been made to comply with disabled access regulations and has the following specifications:

    • Wheelchair accessible ramp
    • Large turning space inside the toilet
    • Grab rails
    • Hand sanitiser
    • Wipe down walls and floor
    • Water-less urinal
    • Urine diverted to soak-away

     

    Featuring our very own urine separator and wheelie bin design, this toilet is the perfect way to close the nutrients loop and keep feeding the earth that feeds us.

  • Storytelling chairs for school playground

    Making storytelling chairs for schools is one of the most rewarding and creative aspects of our work. We all know how important children's imaginations are for cognitive development. Children do not move, think or speak in a straight line, and neither does imagination nor creativity.

    So  our wonky, weird and wonderful storytelling furniture can only ignite children's imaginations and creativity. And what better way of sparking the imagination that to sit outside under a tree and listen to a story?
