About Us

We, Kenny and Jen Brodie, both started our wood working careers at the same Timber Merchant in Edinburgh, at the start of the millennium. A quirky wee place which encouraged diversity in skills and accommodated unusual requests from customers, it became an inspiration for us to run our own place.

From there, we have graduated on to realise our ambition to run our own timber shop, whilst having collected a variety of woodworking skills over the years to this point.

Kenny has been a joiner for the last 11 years, including shop fitting and set building for nationwide theatre companies. He was also Master carpenter at Pitlochry Festival Theatre for 4 years.

Jen followed on from the Edinburgh timber yard to make tree houses across the country, in addition to joinery work and set building for a number of Scottish theatres.

The opportunity to take over as retailers of woodworking supplies from the site of the Jean Burhouse workshop, seemed to have been tailor made.

Having always been driven by a thirst for knowledge and skills we have been overwhelmed by the interest and talent on offer from people popping into the shop. We are delighted to see and hear about the work of other people working with wood.

Our aim is to continue to develop our own skills and knowledge in woodwork over the coming years, and expand upon a shop which encourages the use of wood throughout whatever discipline you make your own.
