At the end of May 2015, a lovely Spanish student named Aitor joined us from Gran Canaria. He was mainly involved in the design and co-ordination of projects as part of his University Erasmus scheme. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with us and we are very thankful for all the hard work he put into his time here. If you, or someone you know, is looking for a little experience or even a taster day in a hard-working, friendly joinery environment then please do get in touch.
I would just like to say a few words of thanks to all of those who found the time to come along to the family fun race day at Fontwell Park on Sunday 25th May 2014, supporting The Sussex Snowdrop Trust.
The rain held off and the sun shone, a good day was had by all. The support you gave will help The Sussex Snowdrop Trust continue their invaluable work in the community.
It was so nice that many of you came to Sussex Hardwood Workshop’s display stand to express an interest in what we do, it was lovely to meet you and hope the information given was of interest.
Thank you once again.

The choice of wood for your external doors and frames is a decision that will have a long lasting effect on the value of your home. The right kind of wood will last for decades as well as improve the look of your home.

The choices tend to be limited. You can go with teak or mahogany, but for traditional English Homes you really can’t beat oak. If cost is an issue, the European Oak is a good substitute for English Oak. The grade may be slightly lower, but it will still give you years of pleasure. Continue reading
