Fallen and then crafted - How our wine racks are born

It all starts with an ancient woodland which has been left to its natural habitat for many years.

I am proud to be able to say that we never cut trees down but leave them to reach their full potential of growth and then in due time for various reasons they fall.

Now comes the exciting part - to go and gather this amazing wood. We have a vast range of different trees in our woodland, including Oak, Elm, Yew, Walnut, Beach and many more. So exploring is always fun. I look for that special part in the tree truck which I will cut out and use to craft into these beautiful wine racks.

Each wine rack I craft is truly unique and has had its own journey. From its beginning to its final destination, we here at One Stop Earth have taken much care and enjoyment in creating every piece. We hope our customers enjoy them too.

The Journey of The Grand Oak Beam Wine Rack

I think The Grand is one of the finest oak beam wine racks I have crafted so far. It was found in an ancient woodland, with beautiful knots and shakes. However, this meant that it took many hours of craftsmanship to achieve such a stunning 5 hole oak wine rack.  I am sure that whoever becomes the new owner of this beautiful wine rack will appreciate its character as much as I do. It is sure to be a talking point wherever it is placed.

I am continually finding different types of wood which will also be crafted into more beautiful wine racks. Each wine rack is unique and cannot be copied. So just like 1610 each one will have its own story!

Keeping Craftsmanship Alive In This Modern World

For centuries human beings have been crafting - ships, weapons, planes, houses, furniture. I could go on and on, but I wont.
Lets just say, wood is one of the oldest known forms of craftsmanship and we are still using it today. It is tough and durable and will last for years.

So why now are so many things either mass produced in a factory or being imported from around the world. Well, we are living in modern times and due to cutting costs and time, people are losing out on this incredible skill. We think that by crafting in wood such as Oak, you are guaranteed character and quality.

One of our most popular ranges has to be our beautiful Oak beam wine racks. They are stunning to look at and every one is different. Well worth the many hours they take to craft.

Bringing It back!

Here at One Stop Earth we are bringing craftsmanship back and into your home at an affordable cost.
From selecting the right piece of timber, down to finishing off the product using the perfect shade of treatment, every piece we craft we have great pride in and we hope our customers do too.
