Bear Wood Art is a small business based near Edinburgh, in East Lothian, Scotland. I create bespoke, handmade, high-quality, wood-based products for the outdoor and country sports industries.
My products are created using some of the finest Scottish timber, which I source throughout the country.
I graduated from the Chippendale School of Furniture in 2016. This pre-eminent school has provided me with the top quality skills necessary to produce my products to the highest standard at Bear Wood Art.
As a countryman with a passion for the outdoors and country sports, I am able to pursue this in my work. My motivation and knowledge in these areas, as well as my qualification from the Chippendale School of Furniture, has given me a foundation upon which to build a business providing beautiful, high-quality wood-based products for this industry. For example, I am able to provide you with the finest, handmade shield upon which you can mount and set off your valued trophy.
I am lucky enough to work with many beautiful timbers, including oak, elm, yew, walnut, ash, beech, and sycamore.
My personal favourite is elm, as I find nothing more pleasing to the eye than a beautifully polished piece of burr elm.
It is important to me that my timber comes only from Scotland. So, I am able to ensure that it is sustainably sourced, local to my workshop, and choose timber of the best quality for my products.
