Portfolio • Trooks

Birdhouse

We lost our lovely lilac tree last year as a result of the severe winter so had no other choice but to remove it and think of a way of using the wood so all was not lost. Clearly there wasn't enough to make a ladder back chair so I decided to make something less complicated - the humble hook.

This turned into what we now call the "Trook" from the words “Tree” and “Hook” and is made from the natural wastage produced when a tree needs to be cut back or sadly comes to the end of its life. By their very nature Trooks are totally unique which means each one has its own character and appearance.

Trooks are available to buy online in three approximate sizes,  Small 4" - £6, Medium 5" - £9 and Large  6" - £12 but if you’d prefer to select one for yourself then you can visit one of our stockists Either way when you make your purchase you will be informed of the variety of tree it came from and where it was found.
