Tim and Max’s love of trees and timber began in childhood, growing up on edge of the Cotswold escarpment in Gloucestershire. Woods stretched for miles behind the family home. Here they made numerous tree-dens, carts, skis and stilts; longbows, arrows and a vicious crossbow; model boats and aeroplanes too – all from materials close at hand and with their dad’s hand tools, mainly his machete.

This was a grounding in the art of the possible and the sheer joy of fettling, bodging and making something from scratch. At the same time, they were learning the nature of trees and their timber and the skills of woodland management. 

Perhaps it was in the blood. Their great-grandfather was an estates carpenter and they still refer to his beautifully engraved book while his well-worn tools are in daily use.
