Unique wood turned gifts, all lovingly handcrafted in the Scottish Highlands
Year Founded: 2022
WoodyNess is a creative husband (Woody) and wife (Hen) partnership based in the Highlands, tucked away in a Glen not far from the iconic Loch Ness.
Our passion is the creation of unique, handmade, beautiful, wooden pieces from species native to Scotland, but we are occasionally tempted by the odd exotic wood. The items may be embellished with colour, in the form of paints or dyes, or with carving, but quite often the natural beauty of the wood is left to speak for itself. Each piece is considered and executed with care, and given attention and time.
Some of our favourite items from our WoodyNess Collection are extra special pieces that have been chosen either for the incredible beauty of the wood; because of additional detail and craftsmanship added by a desire to create something different; or both. These pieces show part of Woody’s personality and his love of crafting wood.
Finally, there is a part of the maker in all handmade pieces; in the planning, the tooling and the detailing, the pleasure and sometimes the pain, the failures and successes, the sweat in the summer and the cold endured in winter are all in there.
