JK Wood Works(13)
Unique, handmade wooden items for the home in Ash Vale, United Kingdom
As a classical guitarist, I have always had a strong relationship with wood. As well as the texture and appearance, I love the way wood is used to create tonal variety in musical instruments.
About JK Wood Works
I've always made things from wood for myself and to use around the home, but after friends and family showed interest, I decided to create specific items for sale. Woodworking is a pleasure for me and I take great pride in the the items I create. Each piece of wood has its own unique character and this is reflected in the items I create.
I have always loved wood - the texture and appearance of raw timber and the variety of the grain figuring. My favourite woods to work with are kiaat and wild mango. I personally select the wood from a local timber yard, specialising in exotic timbers from sustainable sources. I create a variety of handmade items, including magnetic kitchen knife racks, pinch pots and wine racks. All my items are made by me at home using traditional woodworking hand tools and basic power tools (for the tougher tasks). Once made, the pieces are hand sanded and finished in either pure mineral oil or waxes, depending upon their use. Both finishes highlight the individual character of each piece of wood, making each item unique. All my items are made to order. I specify 6-10 working days to make the orders, but often the item is ready much sooner, particularly if I have ready made stock. 10 working days is only occasionally needed for when I need to source extra materials. All items are posted by tracked, signed for courier.
Average Production Time for Custom Orders: 8 days
Custom Order Options: My knife racks are made in 3, 4, 5 & 6-knife configurations. If you need a rack to hold more knives and/or a different knife spacing, I can create this for you. For example, a recent bespoke order was for a 14-knife rack in oak. Please contact me with your request and I will be happy to discuss it with you.
