In the shop you will find a variety of green woodworking furniture including chairs and other furniture items that have all been handcrafted using traditional green woodworking skills and techniques. All of these items have been made using locally-sourced ash wood which is used in its ‘green’ state – freshly felled. The ash trees are felled as part of a local sustainable woodland management programme in order to help support and maintain the woodland environment. Logs are split using a froe and maul before using the shave horse and sharp hand tools, such as a draw-knife, to make individual chair components. Glue is not used in the making of the chairs, stools and other furniture but instead, traditional green woodworking wet-dry jointing techniques are employed which utilise the natural properties of the ash – one of the amazing key features of the green woodworking craft. Some joints may be secured using oak pegs and wedges too which adds additional detail to each unique piece.
