Rustic Chestnut Gates
Here are some examples of bespoke Sweet Chestnut gates and fencing that can be handmade to order. Sweet Chestnut is coppiced sustainably from woodland, which provides a regular supply of quality wood to create naturally durable products. The wood is used green i.e. not kiln dried after removing the bark and much of the sapwood. Various green woodworking tools are used, such as a froe, draw knife, twybil, axe. These are used to shape the Chestnut gates and fencing into the finished pieces.
Natural shapes, bends and twists in the wood are incorporated into finished product to create distinct one off pieces.
Products can be made in a range sizes, shapes and styles, so you can let you imagination run wild…
What’s more coppiced woodland has a positive outcome for biodiversity, therefore by buying any wood products sourced from any coppiced woodlands directly supports future habitat management as well as the rural economy.
There is always a good stock of Sweet Chestnut available in various sizes and lengths, so if you require something specially made to order or need to source some materials for your own green woodworking project, then we are happy to discuss your requirements.
