Shop Announcement:

A very warm welcome to our Folksy shop.

Our waney-edged cheeseboards, food planks, table-centres and conversation pieces are patiently crafted from native British wood. Our pieces are characterised by their dramatic grain configuration, gnarly knots, branch buds and burrs and eccentric form. All food boards are fine sanded and finished with food safe oil. We provide care kits for all of our boards.

From the Waney Grain lathe we create food-safe sommeliers, fruit bowls, elegant dishes and pretty trinket pots in a wide range of wood varieties and sizes.

We produce charming Christmas trees and snowmen in a range of sizes, from 2 inch to 10 inch and in a wide variety of woods. Finished to a high standard that leaves a silk-like feel, these beautiful ornaments are popular all year round, and our customers typically buy them in odd-number collections. We also make these as tree-dangles to hang from a real Christmas tree! The natural colour palettes are tremendously broad and varied, and we use no artificial dyes or stains. Our boxed sets of 3 tree-dangles and 7 variety sample sets make delightful gifts.

Our decorated trees, called our Fantasy Forest, are gilded with gold and silver leaf, and confetti metals called tamise and abburstig. We also use a range of gilding flakes called Cosmic Shimmer and Aurora Flakes when a specific colour and texture is desired. This style of gilding gives a dappled, textured look but feels smooth to the touch. The gilding is protected with a soft sealing varnish to prevent colour fade or tarnishing. Our 'Raw' range of trees are gilded without a wax preliminary sealer, so that the grain is more pronounced.

We create tea-light holders in flat form and as Christmas trees/snowmen.
We also create candle sticks and decorative ornaments including wooden goblets and wooden bottles.

We warmly welcome requests for a bespoke service, both for our boards and our turnery.

Graceful spalted beech tealight holder

Graceful spalted beech tealight holder

Love this


Our elegant and tactile tealight holder has been crafted from beautiful native English spalted beech. With clean lines associated with a flowing 'pedestal' form, this tealight holder is a joy to look at and a pleasure to hold.

There are inky scribbles that draw fascinating patterns and these are set against a rich warm cinnamon/toffee heartwood that displays subtle grain contour lines.

Finished with microcrystalline wax, this tealight holder is both practical and decorative. Perfect as a room accent where gentle flame light adds movement, mood and mystery, and wonderful on a dining table as a table centre.

Our elegant spalted beech tealight makes a perfect gift, for Mothering Sunday, Father's Day, birthday, anniversary, and wedding day.

We can post this beautiful tealight holder direct to your recipient with a personal message from you

Please feel very welcome to drop us a line if you have questions or requests.


We love to work with spalted beech because of the exciting and random distribution of the colours, grain character and texture variations. When we start work on a piece, we watch with fascination as the spalting reveals itself, and Nick's chisel-work has to be both sensitive and responsive.

Nick takes great pleasure from the design and creation of a tealight holder, and the pedestal form is one of his favourites. With a sleek waisted shaft that flows into a soft-shouldered light-dome, the proportions of our pedestals are a delight.
