Granfors Bruk.

Really good, high quality Swedish tool makers. We use only Gransfors axes, the best. They also run courses in Log building and blacksmithing.

Ben Orford.

A wonderful knife maker based in Herefordshire, Ben makes the knifes and Lois the leather work. I use mine every day, and it brings pleasure and quality to my days in the woods.

Windy Smithy.

Lovely functional wood burning stoves made in Devon. Simple and really effective at heating small spaces. I have one in my little woodland retreat and have spent many an hour sat next to it.

Jack Lines.

A young and enthusiastic architect originating form south Shropshire. Jack studied architecture in Newcastle and has been working for a London based company since graduating. His true passion is creating, and visualising buildings.

Mark Griffiths.
www.markgriffithspottery.co.uk

My father who is an inspiration to me. A traditionalist, a craftsman and an artist. He still produces pottery from the family home, and runs courses, but his heart lies in his woodland in Wales, where most of the timber comes from for the cabins.

Studiosmith & Wonder
www.smithandwonder.com

A lovely freelance designer & maker based in the south east of England. With rather vague and undeveloped ideas, Mel has helped me through the design process, and created this wonderful logo.
A rare mix of kindness and professionalism.

Edward Fury

A great photographer with a keen eye for variety of projects.
Edd is highly talented, enthusiastic and also great fun when out shooting.
I strongly recommend you visit his website for a look at some really interesting still life projects.

Woodsmith Experience.

www.woodsmithexperience.co.uk

A small independent woodworking tool supplier based in the north east. I buy most of my tools from this really helpful and enthusiastic group of people. Maurice is a very knowledgable chap, and keen to help and advise on a number of green wood related subjects.
