Bob Murray - Craftsman in Wood

Bob has a professional background in Industrial Design and more recently furniture design and construction.  

He has an empathy with wood, crafting pieces, whether furniture or bowls which utilise the natural beauty of the species he’s working with.  Bob sources his own wood – all Scottish hardwoods.  In fact he ‘saves’ the trees, usually felled by storms or as a result of good forest management, and gives them new life in pieces which will last a few more hundred years and give joy in a new way to their owner and friends.

Bob ‘planks’ the wood at source transporting back to Crail where he nurtures the wood through a natural air and kiln drying process which takes a number of years until the wood is  ‘just right’ to begin his craftsmanship.
