The Workshop

The Workshop
Wood Monkey Workshop is situated on Luccombe Farm, just outside the historic thatched village of Milton Abbas.   The estate is a working arable farm with a variety of small independent craft businesses, a horse riding school & livery stables, holiday farm cottages and ample walking in the heart of picturesque rural Dorset.

The workshop is one of a group of old farm buildings which form a courtyard dating back to the 1700's. 

All stages of the craft are done in the workshop, including design, making, finishing and the photo shoot. 

Most of the photos below were taken during July 2017.

The guard wall to the design studio shows an array of old woodworking tools, some I had when I was an apprentice.  The oldest tool is the infill panel plane (above left of the fluorescent light fitting) which is over 200 years old.

The only way up to the design studio.

I've owned this A0X drawing board for over 20 years and she still does the job very well.

The comfy chair.

Back in the workshop.
You can see Merlin the Wizard near the entrance door - always filling the 'shop with magical thoughts.

This photo was taken in 2013 during the closing stages of the lady's writing desk in maple.
I've always liked this picture.

Workshop visits are welcome - come and say hello!
