Having been brought up on the family farm in the rural Irish countryside has encouraged Noel to be interested in a sustainable way of living.

As a result Noel increasingly uses locally grown timber including trees from his own farm.

These trees are usually wind blown or have become unsafe and have to be taken down.

He then mills these trees into boards which are air dried for at least a year and then further dried in a kiln adjacent to the workshop.

As well as using wood Noel also enjoys using other materials such as leather and metal.
