A Little About Our Story

Born from the Covid-19 crisis, I opened my doors in 2020.

My regular business is outdoor catering, however my trade is in carpentry.

What started as a hobby and activity during lockdown turned into a passion for the craft and giving new life to the oak barrels, then blossomed into a business of creating custom designs for customers.

For my craft, every component of the whisky barrel has a value.

I make my craft into beautiful functional pieces made by hand that you can use on a daily basis and also be displayed as a piece of art.

What makes the whisky barrel unique to work with is not making that perfectly symmetrical piece of craft, but that every piece is unique, not all staves are the same width and bend, not all barrel heads have the same size wood, or joined the same way, not all the bands are the exact same diameter.

All these imperfections make each piece one of a kind.

I use only the finest, hand-picked materials and finishes in every project, and do everything to use local sources as much as possible. To request or discuss an order, please contact me today.
