Cutting Silver Birch Display Logs

The dreadful weather this morning put paid to any outside jobs which was bad news for the pumpkins but good news for one of our local florists. She has been patiently waiting for a selection of premium Silver Birch ‘display’ logs to use in wedding features and flower arrangements.

I’ve cut many more than she will probably need to allow her a good choice. Any rejected will probably end up as blanks for the kids to paint up as log Santa’s or table numbers for restaurants or weddings.

It’s Rustic Santa Time

Our Rustic Santas are once again being packed ready for the Christmas markets.

Every Santa is made from our own home grown timber (mainly Silver Birch) which has been fully seasoned so they will not leave a mark on the table cloth. Each one is individually made so no two Santa’s are the same.

Due to popular demand we have made a few Everton Santa’s but they do look lonely!

It might sound daft, but it is disconcerting closing the lid and sealing the box with all those eyes watching.

These are an easy project for all ages and we do sell the unpainted blanks for you to decorate if you don’t want the kids using a 3 phase bandsaw!

With enough notice, we can also supply¬†large log Santa’s for Christmas shop window dressing or displays.
