Below, Book Ends in Elm

By Alec Mutch.

The business was first setup in 1991 in Easter Ross, as mainly a finished product shop. It quickly became apparent that there was a need for a supplies outlet and also tuition for wood turners, this we took on board. After a move in 1994 we re-established our business in the present location to very good effect.

Alec is the main craftsman working on site. Rosie is the front of house person, dealing with all customers. We also use the talents of several other local woodworkers, whom supply a variety of hand made artefacts.

The supplies side of our business is gradually on the increase in both variety and quantity.
