Natural Edge Wood


Colin Ritchie's furniture makes a feature of the beautiful, flowing curves of natural edge wood. He sources all of his wood locally from windfall trees, organises to have it milled locally, and seasons the timber on site. Colin knows each piece of timber "personally". So if you have a specific sized table in mind, or need a beautiful timber window seat made for a particular bay window, or have a certain corner of your house that needs to be shelved, Colin will know exactly the right slab of timber for the job.

As he sources all of his timber locally, Colin has a wonderful selection of Irish hardwoods. The main species are oak, elm, beech and sweet chestnut. Occassionally, something else may crop up, so please ask if you have a certain timber grain in mind.

Take a look at some of his pieces. We hope you enjoy the photos.
