We are exhibition several pieces of furniture in ” The Line gallery” in Linlithgow next month. for more info on the gallery go to http://www.thelineonline.co.uk/
Our Emnet console table will be on display. It was inspired from a trip to Norway where i spent a week learning how to make a weaving loom by hand. They had a technique of finding timber that is the correct shape, which minimized the need to joint piece together. I thought this would be an interesting starting point for a design using local Shetland timber for the two Y shaped uprights.
I have recently been involved with an exciting art project. I made decorative boxes which are on display in the Shetland Museum. The display is a collaboration between artist John Cumming and myself. John made various beautiful object in different stone materials. It’s around the theme of “ditty boxes” used by fishermen long ago to store precious small items while at sea. This runs untill the end of August and can be seen on the ground floor outside the auditorium. Later in the year it will be on display in Orkney and then next year it will travel to Ullapool and Dortmund, Germany. The design was inspired from the shape of a gold bar and I used rare and expensive veneers like quilted maple, ice birch, rosewood and wenge to emphasis the precious nature of the various boxes. The project was funded by the Cape farewell foundation
Next week from the 22nd -24th of May we are exhibiting our guitar stand stool in London.

We are having another open workshop weekend over Sat 7th 11pm-5pm and Sun 8th 12pm-5pm. Our last open workshop was hampered quite a bit by snow so we thought it would fun to give folk another chance to see the workshop. There will be stock items for sale and 10% off all purchases and orders taken over the weekend.
Hope to see you there.
Above are two types of Shetland chairs which we produce. Traditionally they were found in the local croft houses and were made mostly from driftwood. Their style lends itself to modern housing and surprisingly they are modern in their design. They have become popular as carvers for dining tables. More to follow on the styles of Shetland chairs that we produce.
