Whilst we cannot be described as a great oak just yet, it is an apt quote for how Bramble Cottage Woodcraft came into being. The seed was sown in early 2010 when my wife said she would like a garden swing seat in oak. Sitting down that evening and browsing the internet, we could find very few swing seats in oak and none that we really liked. I therefore said that I would make one.
Having said that, at the time I had no idea what form the swing seat would take or what design it would incorporate. However, I was taken with the idea of creating a design into the back of the seat that formed part of the seats structure but different from the normal symmetrical designs. Out walking early one morning, I was taken with the beautiful sunrise and the idea of incorporating the sun and its rays into the seat was born.
