The Wooden Quaich

Craft from the Scottish Highlands…

Brexit Bourach

I've finally migrated off Wordpress as it seem to attract hackers like an open jar of jam attracts wasps.
However the satisfaction was short lived as a realised that shipping outside of the UK has become a complete nightmare and it looks like I won't be able to take orders from non UK clients until the dust settles.
So Sorry folks nae quaichs abroad for the foreseeable future :(

Lockdown Blues

Well here we go again,
so far we've been lucky, but just last week there was an outbreak of the new variant in a nearby town.
So I guess we'll all just have to coorie doon for January and wait patiently for our jags
Still haven't quite got round to redding out the workshop so perhaps this month will be the one ;)
Still got a reasonable stock of Oak should anyone need a cheeky wee quaich ;)

In the meantime stay safe and warm everybody

Some respite

WooHoo! I have managed to source a fresh supply of Scottish oak.
So as we slowly return to the new normal and the chance to celebrate life’s milestones, I am gratefully opening up for orders again.
Initially I will be offering a “Hobsons choice” of timbers, you can have any timber you like as long as it’s oak!
Apart from that all the usual options of engraving or inset coins etc are available as normal
So happy to once again be able to be a small part of other peoples celebrations

Covid - March 2020

It seems my mailbox is full of messages from various CEO’s concerning their companies Covid-19 statement.
So here is my somewhat Dusty version

Today I should have been happily announcing obtaining this new years supply of timber.
Sadly it is still languishing at the timber yard and it looks like it will be a fair wee whiley before I’ll be able to collect it.
Not surprisingly, I’m currently contemplating the long term viability of a business based on the concept of a cup which is passed round people in a time of social distancing
Don’t get me started on the pathetic way the UK government has abandoned the self employed
Still, I am lucky to live such a beautiful location and our community does seem to have avoided the worst of the panic buying.
