Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful
William Morris


Welcome to Woodsmithworks,

Here you will find a selection of bespoke artisan homewares and furniture. I began this journey making handcrafted sculptured serving and cutting boards. I have now recently included mid-century style, hairpin leg coffee tables.

In the coming months the range will continue to expand, including cake stands, plant pot holders, tripod lamps, steps and many other useful items. I hope it will develop into a haven for quality products.

Around my own handcrafted creations, I will also be assimilating a curated list of artisan made and designed items, within the British Isles.

There will be a garden section, with the perfect, naturally shaped Green & Blue bird feeders.

Sam Wilson supplies the gorgeous lampshades and soft furnishings.

Sam Purcell Designs will be adding her original watercolour pictures of hares, to fine bone china mugs, jugs and other accessories. Ema Makes who works in collaboration with Sam Purcell, has handmade some fabulous hares which will be featured on the site soon !!

Sarah Bonner will be making some wonderful botanical prints and miniatures from her original work. They have a minimalist scandi feel to them and blend very well with my own design aesthetics.

Sophie Skilton will be creating the right mood and ambience, with some lovely vegan 100% natural soy wax candles. They are free of phthalates, parabens and animal derivates and have some wonderful crackling wood wicks and high quality essential oils.

Also joining the community soon is the talented ceramic artist Janice Powley, who will be making some unique handmade items.

The website will be going through some major changes, so please bear with me. I am looking for quality in manfacture and design and will champion small business with ethical principles.

The main vision is to bring beauty and functionality into the home, to improve the quality and pleasure in using everyday items. My heart and soul goes into the things I make, I want them to be enjoyed, to have a life.

Wood is a very organic material, it has many characters and grain patterns. The patina will improve with age and daily use.

I take my inspiration from nature, spending time in the Cairngorm mountains, the wilderness and being surrounded by gods canvas. I know I will never create anything as beautiful and serene, as the tree it came from.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, 

have a peaceful day,

Norman Smith
