My name is Malc and my passion is crafting useful and decorative pieces from wood (coming second of course to my wife and family!).
I am self taught and I use almost exclusively reclaimed timber (up to 80 year old roof timbers and oak flooring etc) which has so much more character than new timber. Pallet wood is very underestimated and many of my picture frames are made from this. My sources are contacts in the building trade who are happy for me to reuse their unwanted timber rather than it going to landfill. I have also gained a reputation locally where people let me know of any unwanted timber that I could repurpose.
Over the past 5 or so years I have successfully exhibited at many craft shows, my favourite being RHS Hyde Hall in Essex, along with Cressing Temple Barns and Clare Priory. I have also sold items in local craft and florist shops.
My wife Denise and I work together endeavouring to bring new ideas and designs to the shows and website and everything is handcrafted and totally individual. There is occasionally a recycled piece which is then given 'our look'.
Our aim is not to become mass producers but to make stand alone pieces. However, some of our lines have proved very popular and I am more than happy to make these again, sometimes incorporating customers' designs and requests!
The gallery is a snapshot of the items I have previously made and some that are still for sale. Our website is not an online shop, however, if there is something you like, please contact me to discuss.
Please browse the gallery and contact me via the 'contact us' page with any questions or requests you may have. Alternatively, give me a call and I would be happy to speak to you over the telephone. Also, see the Events section to see when my next show is.
I hope you enjoy looking at my website.
