New Beech Cheese Boards Have Arrived

Beech Cheese Platters and Chopping Boards at the Handmade Craft House

Some new Beech cheese boards have arrived in store. Like all of our cheese boards and serving platters, these are handmade by Mike Dixon using locally grown timber from the borderlands of Scotland.

These boards feature some truly beautiful grain and have a lovely, delicate milkiness to the colouring. As with all our boards, they are suitable for preparing and serving food or just to bring a touch of rustic charm to your kitchen!

The boards featured here start at £18 for the small, handled platters, ranging to £39 for the table runner.

You can find more of our exclusive boards and platters here.

New Handcrafted Benches

We have a new selection of benches just in!

These benches has been crafted in-house as part of our popular “Heart of Wood” range.

They have been hand made using a range of locally grown timbers including Elm, Burr Oak and Beech.

Each piece has been constructed from wood that we have carefully selected for its own individual character and beauty, and are therefore all one-off original pieces.

Prices range from £149 to £249 and are available to view at our main showroom in Dumfries.

The DART : Dumfries Art Trail coverage starts at about 12 minutes in, and we are featured at the 17 minute mark, but the whole program is really interesting.
