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.
My woodwork is part of a sustainable lifestyle, where I am trying to ensure I put back more than I take.
All my timber is sourced as locally and sustainably as possible, with an eventual aim to use much of my own timber in future work.
I avoid using any non-natural treatments and finishes on timber.
Carved Sign – Oak
My oak signs are made from high quality Scottish grown oak. I do not normally keep oak in stock, so it is best to email me first to check on stock before ordering.
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.
Wooden Seed Tray
Make the switch away from plastic in your potting shed with these traditional and durable wooden seed trays. Not so long ago, all seed trays would have been made from wood.
Illusion Coaster Set
These funky designs really draw your eye in. I made them just for fun but really liked the end result so have decided to add them to the shop.
Larch Plant Labels – 50
Solid wood plant labels made from sustainably sourced Scottish larch. I have started to make some plant labels from larch as a cheaper alternative to my oak ones. The main difference is that larch is a softer wood, meaning that these will be slightly less durable and will not cope with as many seasons of reuse.
Heavy duty wooden feed troughs made from larch.
Sycamore Serving Board
Simple and elegant. This serving board is made from Scottish grown sycamore.
Oak Plant Labels – Large
Solid wood plant labels made from sustainably sourced oak.
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.
