About Us


Paul established the workshop & woodstore in 2007 inside a former Cornish Blacksmith's forge, (built from cob and stone over 300 years ago) in Lanreath, near Looe in South-East Cornwall. In 2011 the business & workshop moved to a new location in Lanreath.

We use local responsibly sourced timber with a combination of the best of traditional techniques and modern woodworking machinery.
