Bring Real Rustic Charm with this Traditional Farm Milking Stool

Handmade Farm Stool made with locally grown hardwood from the borderlands of Scotland by the Handmade Craft House

This lovely handmade farm stool radiates rustic charm and harks back to simpler times.

Our woodworker, Mike, has cut and shaped each component by hand and assembled it using traditional Wedged Mortise and Tenon joints meaning that this stool will stay stable for the rest of its life.
Mike has carefully chosen each piece of wood used in this handmade farm stool for it’s strength and it’s character – the beautiful Burr Oak top is gorgeously speckled with dozens of miniature knots from the tiny twigs that protrude from the tree.
The legs have been turned by hand from Elm which has a lovely rich caramel-coffee colour.
Available in-store or you can buy it online directly.

Atmospheric Watercolour Print Enhanced by Dark Stained Oak Frame

This beautiful print “Winter over Galloway Hills” was framed for a customer using our Bespoke Picture Framing service. They wanted a natural wood that would compliment and not detract from the image and really liked the effect of this dark-stained oak.

We think the choice of a darker frame was really effective – it draws out the line of dark, wet pebbles on the shoreline. The lighter flecks in the wood grain also compliment the tans and yellow ochres of the sand and grasses in the foreground.

The oak in this frame is grown locally in the borderlands of Scotland and is cut, prepared and finished entirely by hand.
If you would like a photograph or piece of art to be framed using our Bespoke Framing service then please get in touch.
