The Workshops

Our workshops are busy everyday building window shutters and doors. We also make a variety of Architectural wooden products in Oradour Sur Vayres of France. What sets us apart from other manufacturers is that we produce quality products using power from the Sun. It is our way to do our part towards being carbon neutral.

The Blog

Our artisan blog is a compendium of ‘Marcus Ketts’ woodworking knowledge based on his 30 years of crafting timber into useful and artistic works. A variety of different skills using traditional tools and modern machines in his ‘Solar-Powered’ workshop. In this BLOG, you will find many different woodworking topics that include anything from ’Health and Safety’ to ancient ‘Woodland Woodbodging’.

I believe education should not be conformist but be the natural evolution from failure and success!
