  • Woodland cabin – Barrel Top Wagons
    visiting the site a stunning 40 acre woodland which has the river Exe running through it we realised the biggest challenge would be getting the cabin to it s final destination It was going to the furthest most point on the site and there was no obvious answer We started to think maybe the neighbours would be good enough to let us take the trailer across their field And so after meeting with Ian and local farmer George it was decided that this would be the solution We set a date and worked towards it Thanks to accuweather we soon realised that the date set was looking like a wash out and had to bump the delivery by a further week What a good move this turned out to be the rain was horizontal and the wind was wild definitely not good weather for putting up a cabin The following week though was sunny dry and calm Perfect Supplies had been bought biscuits had been made tents had been packed and the trailer and vans were ready to go At 4am on a Monday morning the boys headed to the workshop checked one last time that they hadn t forgotten anything gave another pull on the ratchet straps and headed off By 8am they were at the meeting point where George lifted everything off with his tractor onto one big trailer and they all trooped across the field where George emptied the load at the closest point to the site The boys then manhandled the load across a stream and set about assembling the structure Sleeping platform and wood burner The site work took 8 days with blissfully good weather Trout were caught canoes paddled and fallen out of fires cooked on The result is a beautiful cabin set in

  • We love The Contemporary Craft Festival – Barrel Top Wagons
    rare display of impulsive behaviour we threw caution to the wind and agreed to go And boy are we pleased we did The fair is regarded as one of the top shows for designers and makers in the country and the level of work is extraordinary We made a huge gaff by not being open for the preview night and arrived on Friday to find a note stuck to our door saying We were desperate to see inside last night so sorry you weren t here and lot s of nose and finger prints on the windows Eek Fairly epic fail But the following three days were amazing We were mobbed Sarah has cultivated a show which has the atmosphere of a small festival with food and talks and workshops whilst displaying some of the finest craft around The park itself is small enough to cover in an afternoon but with the relaxed vibe and especially if the sun is shining which it was that weekend it s easy to spend a day floating around there Highlight last year was someone asking if Jonathon Dimbelby who was having a look in the wagon was my husband Oh how we chortled and the lovely people both in attendance and exhibiting I ll be honest there could be the potential for an event like this to be a little erm how shall we put this Pretentious With that standard of work it would almost be expected But not under the tenure of Ms James It s fun and clever and slick Which is why we are thrilled to bits to be returning this year with the New Wagon very exciting In fact we feel very proud to be displaying our work in that space And yes we will be there on the

    a lovely lightweight and light coloured wood from Cornwall and did a number of tests involving hummus red wine and olive oil oh that was a tough night We decided on Treatex hard wax oil to use on the wood as it not only showed no signs of damage during the robust testing but had no odour And as these tables were going to be in use a few days after treating them this was important So it began and the tables and benches were festival bound in plenty of time to be arranged and dressed ready for the party people Hooes yurt ready for Glastonbury people Next up were Shebbear college who having seen the benches we produced for Hooes yurts decided they d like some too These didn t need to be collapsible but they did need to be tough enough to cope with 14 year old boys larking about on them so we chose Douglas fir from Dartmoor and finished them with Treatex organic UV oil topped with Danish oil They obviously liked them because they immediately ordered another load Lovely Douglas fir bench seats perfect for that first kiss Hooes yurts have since returned with a request for a bar same spec lightweight collapsible sturdy and light coloured to match their lovely banqueting tables and yurts Spruce was used again to make a solid chunky top again hard wax oil by Treatex to finish and then birch ply to make two shelves which can unbolt with the sides folding in to make a beautiful feature bar which can be easily transported And off it zoomed to take it s place in amongst the party Collapsible Spruce and birch ply bar for Hooes yurts So you see it s not just about the sizable glory pieces the
