Solid timber and timber based products are at the very heart of our business and its our love for trees , wood and nature that is why we do what we do. The future of our business and the future of our planet depend on the proper management of our forests and their renewable resources. This is why we go out of our way to source materials from suppliers with strict ethical and environmental policies that supply timber from sustainable and well managed forests.
We fully appreciate like all companies based in the wood business we have a commitment and responsibility towards our environment and we take this very seriously. A lot of the timber we use is tagged and and traceable right back to its source.

As part of our environmental commitment we go out of our way to make use of every bit of timber down to the smallest scraps. We regularly supply a local school with sizeable off-cuts for their design and technology department. Helping to give the best chance to the up and coming generation of designers and makers.
When installing or doing architectural work, any useable timber is carefully removed and stored at our workshop in our reclaimed timber store for later use.
Any clean timber scraps that can't be made in to something beautiful are used to heat our workshop during the winter months. Anything we cant burn safely is sent off to be burnt in combustion chambers and turned into energy.
