WELCOME TO ATLANTIC DRIFT: WOODCRAFT BY AL WHITWORTH
Based in Skerray in the far north of the Highlands, my home is a working croft where I look after the land, grow trees and food.
My carpentry work is always changing and I enjoy a challenge to create something new and environmentally responsible.
Browse around the website for a taste of what I do, here are my latest projects:
Baathroom Sign – Carved Oak & Felted Wool
Here’s a quirky and fun hanging sign for your bathroom, or should I say baathroom! Designed by my wife (the pun enthusiast!) each sign is carved from solid oak and backed with recycled felted Shetland wool jumper pieces.
Carved Sign – Douglas Fir
Douglas Fir is a beautiful timber to use for signs. My douglas fir is locally sourced in the Highlands from sustainable woodlands.
As no two signs are ever the same, have a look at the description and pricing for my signs below and then request a quote and I will get back to you within 2 days.
Oak Plant Labels
Solid wood plant labels made from sustainably sourced oak. Choose from two different sizes, depending on what you would like the markers for.
Oak is naturally durable outside and so these will last many years. Without treatment they will eventually fade to a silvery colour. At the end of each season simply sand them down and use again next year.
Shetland Oak & Tweed Carved Map
A beautiful carved map of Shetland in oak and backed with Shetland tweed. The frame is also solid oak.
These maps are intricately carved out and show Shetland’s rugged coastline and islands in detail. All the main islands and areas of Shetland are carved into the design with a compass rose finishing the piece off.
