FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP & SUSTAINABLE WOODWORKING
The Fine Wooden Article Co. has its roots in England’s South West, where founder Peter Meredith found a passion for woodworking as a teenager, training as a shipwright, then as a naval architect specialised in the classic yacht manufacture and restoration industry. By the by, his love of wood & a passion for form and function naturally evolved into the creation of unique, hand-crafted fine hardwood designs. Ingenious craftsmanship and exemplary attention to detail has allowed The Fine Wooden Article Co. to grow from commission to commission, strength to strength.
We believe that good design is founded on sustainable resource management, so we work only with responsibly sourced English hardwoods from our own managed ancient indigenous broadleaf woodlands in Devon, or through links with local tree-surgery and land management operations.
We take our inspiration from the natural qualities of the wood and the character of each piece we work with so that you may come to own a true piece of English heritage. Equally, our designs are informed by our clients – every effort goes into providing you with a personal, bespoke service and engaging you in the design process.
Our shop contains a core range of hardwood furniture and accessories for the home & garden, designed to be customised, to provide you with quality workmanship to suit your need and wish. We also provide a bespoke furniture and kitchen design service.
Our workshop is located in the heart of Gloucestershire, nestled in the banks of the river Severn, in close proximity to the Gloucester Docks with close by motorway access. The workshops are adapted to cater to most any wood project: from dining table to housing and building Masts & Spars up to 100’ length, architectural timber and public space installations.
