The concept behind this site is about producing beautiful functional spoons and furniture from timber that would otherwise not normally find its way into the furniture industry.
It’s based around low impact, environmentally friendly, with teaching and passing on skills through the workshops, so that others may benefit and go on to produce beautiful items.
Based in West London at Horsenden Farm, Perivale, using locally sourced timber, with most of the timbers gathered as part of woodland management right next to the farm on Horsenden Hill, Thomas works with the local Ealing rangers, collects the logs stores them and they are then used to create beautiful items.
Join one of the spoon carving workshops and get expert tuition and carve your own spoon and the skills required to go on and create many more spoons in the future.
Spoons can be created from logs as small as 3″ so there is always a good supply of timber to use and carve into beautiful spoons. With the vast majority of timbers good for spoon carving you can create beautiful shapes and spoons for every possible use.
Rustic three legged stool
This rustic three legged stool never fails to raise a smile and admired looks. Its rustic charm allows the beauty of the timber to shine. More information and booking form on the workshop page and a blog post of a previous workshop here.
Demonstrations, tabletop sales
It’s always a pleasure to demonstrate and display the spoons along with other green woodworking. Please contact me if you are interested in having a demonstration at a fete or open day.
A technique of producing beautiful usable pots and containers that in design are 1000’s of years old and still as useful today as they have ever been.
Very simply they are a hollowed out log and a base is fitted into groove in the bottom of the log. The clever bit is the log is hollowed green and the base is dry wood. As the log dries it shrinks onto the base securing it into the groove. The paint is milk paint and again various forms of milk paints are 1000’s of years old.
