Home Wood Carving Renovations About/Contact

Welcome to the web site of Iain Bruce. Iain specializes in magical old world wood carvings and architectural features.



Given free reign Iain will usually work with reclaimed material rather than new. Want to hear his thoughts? Read on.

"Yes, it takes time and effort to source some forgotten old timber or rusty steel gadget, decide how it can be implemented, and then haggle, transport, clean, and skillfully include what is now treasure. BUT, knowing that the jackass across the street could only HOPE to have such class makes it all the more valuable. Let him have his new plastic gimmick. You could not pay me to take them.

Having said that, there are many skilled and passionate craftsman using many different methods to create beautiful pieces. My life experience and personal beliefs have led me to this point, but they are just that, my personal beliefs."
