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.

BLUE CAMPAIGN

I am proud to be part of the growing BLUE Campaign, which encourages people to rewild their gardens and give space to nature. People show their support by displaying a wooden blue heart in their garden or lawn. I volunteered to help them to make and sell blue hearts on behalf of the campaign.

SUSTAINABILITY

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.

PLANTING TREES

For every product I sell, I plant a tree on our croft. Find out more here…
