Fancy Stocking Our Products? Get Your Starter Pack!

We were recently contacted by a company called Edie-Mae's, a bespoke re-design service based in Dorset. Claire, who founded the company in 2014 was interested in stocking our products in their shop. She was attracted to our environmentally friendly wood stain / dye as this fits with the ethos of her company.  This was highly interesting to us as our stockists are currently located around the North West of England so Edie-Mae's would be our first stockist to be further afield. However, this meant that Les couldn't pop in with the products for them to have a look at. This...

A Super (hero) Project!

As we potter about our unit up here in Darwen, we often wonder what weird and wonderful projects our wood dye / stain is being used for. This is why we love it when people like Alex from The Sidney Edgar Workshop get in touch. Alex had recently ordered some of our English Oak and has used it brilliantly to finish the top of a bar in what we would describe as the ultimate 'man cave'. One of his customers, a fan of Marvel comics, has converted a room in his house into something of a shrine to superheroes, complete with plasma...

On Board!

When we're looking to sell our products to the general public - via our trusted stockists - we feel it's very important to let them see exactly what they will be getting for their money.

As you can imagine, this isn't a quick process; each colour has its own display block which is cut to the required size and sanded by hand. It's vital that the utmost care is taken during this process -...

The Perfect Gift!

We were intrigued this week when we took a large order of our pastel colours on eBay.  These colours are quite often ordered for those small arts and craft projects so we're always interested when somebody orders a large amount.  After a bit of research, we discovered a wonderful company called Personalised Gifting, based in Catterick, North Yorkshire.  Like us, they are a family business looking to expand their presence on the internet and get their beautiful products out to the world.  Specialising in engraving products, they currently sell cheese boards, plaques and boxes.  The boxes above have been finished in our...

New Horizons!

It's six weeks into 2017 and we're pressing on with our plans to bring our products to more of you, having added two names to our Stockists page; that of Marsland Timber (Harrogate) and Southport Timber.  Whilst it is so easy to order our products online, you sometimes can't beat the experience of visiting a shop and talking to the experts. We are very careful in selecting our stockists as we want to ensure that their knowledge of our products and how to use them is second to none. This way, you can be sure to get the best use...
