AT EVERY LEVEL whatever we do it is easy to overlook the effect we might have on our surroundings. However with the future of 4 daughters and a son to consider we are acutely aware of the need to look after our environment wherever possible. We have therefore put together a policy, which we can implement within our own living & working environment.

We believe in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable approach to our forests and will deal only with companies adopting a similar approach.

We work solely with Scottish homegrown timbers. By so doing, supporting local enterprise and helping our woodlands have a sustainable future.

We are keen to promote the beauty and usefulness of our indigenous Scottish timbers. Again contributing to its sustainability.

We feel it is important to put back more than we use and to this end, for every tree we use to build our furniture we provide 2x7' established replacements of the same species. Should groun d not be available with a client, our timber supplier has agreed to set aside a piece of land on w hich we can plant as many as we like.

All finishes used on our furniture are naturally-based such as tong and Danish oils & Beeswax

The paper for our drawings, brochures, letter headings etc. is all printed on recycled paper. All printing will be done in house on an, as needed basis reducing unnecessary waste.

Nothing is wasted, off cuts being used to fuel our fire and all sawdust is used by local farmers and equestrians. We are also looking for a compacting machine, which will compress all the sawdust and woodchips into usable logs for burning.

Timber is one of the few building materials, which can be grown, harvested and regenerated in Scotland as a sustainable resource. By purchasing a Scottish hardwood kitchen piece of furnitu re you are helping to sustain our broadleaf woodland resource by encouraging its ongoing management for the benefit of the natural environment, ourselves and our children.
