This Adirondack chair is now ten years old

These chairs age gracefully into grey but also look good painted up for that Florida beach feel


I can apply a Lichtenberg fractal pattern to any of my wood projects

I may be able to apply the pattern to your wooden items depending on the surface finish applied to the wood

A' things wood with a BumBeeTartan ® twist 

Add something special to create a keepsake souvenir of the day

For that special occasion  e.g wedding, anniversary or retirement, you may have an important item which is central to your memories or reflections of that occasion

Within certain limitations I can take casts from most firm to hard objects (Not living, fur, feathers.... or anything of similar flimsiness) and replicate it in aluminium, brass, bronze or even rusty iron! and incorporate that item for a central display piece for many table displays

Numbers and bases available in other woods, shapes and sizes

Natural stone, slate or pebbles can also be used

Please bear in mind that natural materials will have variations in colour or grain

This means that items will be similar to each other in shape and form but due to these natural variances no two items will be identical  

Bird Feeders and Tables

Hutches kennels or aviaries are not always designed by people who have practical experience of looking after animals

I can build a pet home to make it easier to use or be more suitable for your pet

BumBeeTartan makes table numbers, card holders and other table center pieces to order

I can work with your designs or ideas and can incorporate your materials that you provide to achieve an item unique to you

For example ribbons, cloth or other items can be added to co-ordinate with the main theme  or colour scheme of your event


BumBeeTartan constructs unique whirlygigs and bird feeders made here at the workshop in Balloch 

The whirlygigs and feeders are inspired by Scottish humour and often embellished with BumBee tartan

Table Numbers, Card Holders and Table Centres
