Trees, Trees & More Trees

Handmade tree decorations using locally grown hardwoods by the handmade craft house

“‘Tis the Season…”, although I do think these trees will make a wonderful addition to your home any time of the year!

 

We make all of our trees by hand from locally grown timber. Each tree is totally different and unique. When you stand them side by side it instantly brings movement to the display as if the wind was blowing through.

Use them for Christmas-dinner place settings, a table display or simply as a no-needle-drop miniature Christmas tree!

You can find the whole collection in our Dumfries Shop or buy online.

Prices start from £7.99 for the smaller single trees (11cm x 11cm x 2cm approx).

Medium single trees – £8.99 (16cm x 12cm x 2cm approx)

Larger single trees – £10.99 (20cm x 12cm x 2cm)

Copse with Stands vary in size and are made in a variety of woods. Prices start from £29.

Each Single Tree and Copse with Stand is marked with the type of wood used.

(Dimensions are Height x Width x Thickness)

Rippled Sycamore and Elm Bench

Handcrafted in our own Workshop, this 4ft bench has been created from Rippled Sycamore and Elm that was grown locally in the borderlands of Scotland.

The naturally occuring “rippling” within the grain of the Sycamore gives an almost 3D effect that causes the finish of the bench to look as if it has been quilted.

The bench has been protected by multiple coats of oil and then waxed. This bench can be used for a number of purposes; by the side of a dinning table, to stand at the foot of a double bed, or even as a much-needed coffee table.

This bench, along with others from our workshop, are available to see in our showroom at The Handmade Crafthouse in Dumfries.
