We are Sally and Les Symonds and we are passionate about the range of goods that we either make, or purchase for our stock.


Les is the only professionally registered woodturner working in the Snowdonia National Park, having joined the Register of Professional Turners (RPT), after a rigorous process of application and subsequent approval, in 2016. The RPT is supported by the “Worshipful Company of Turners”, one of the longest established craft guilds still functioning today.
