GREENWOOD CRAFTS

Celi makes a series of products including wooden utensils from potato mashers to spatulas using traditional green woodwork skills and hand tools including a wooden pedal power lathe.  You can view what we currently have for sale in our shop.

 

All products posted use plastic free packaging. Each item comes with a tag that explains where the wood comes from and what it is. It also includes care instructions.

All wood used for the smaller items is sourced as a bi-product from Golden Hill Wood, or other local woodlands where Celi works.

 

Some of the different stages involved in the making process are shown below.

Splitting

The un-seasoned log is split up using a 'Froe' and 'Beatle' into smaller pieces.

Shaving

Using a 'Drawknife' and 'Shavehorse', the pieces are then shaped to almost round. Or if they are flat, all of the shaping work is done here.

Cleaning up

Now the piece needs to be cut out and cleaned up with a knife.

Axing

The split pieces are axed at the corners until they are vaguely round, if the item is getting turned.

Turning

Round pieces are then put on the lathe and turned, details and decoration are added.

Finishing

Finally, it is soaked in oil and polished with a homemade beeswax & grapeseed oil finish.
