Founder of The Wood Project Jenni Kehoe, has always had a love for the outdoors and van life.
"For as long as I can remember, I have always been outdoors or making, creating and tinkering with anything I could find. I grew up in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees and fields so I'm pretty sure something was ingrained in me at that point. My Grandfather was a very skilled man, an upholsterer and furniture restorer by trade and worked such wonders with his hands. He was always showing me how to make things in his workshop at the end of his garden."
The Wood Project started as a business making her own wooden products for customers in her workshop and also teaching woodwork, but Jenni found the business direction was naturally changing due to demand for items she was sourcing online and introducing products and brands that others loved and found useful on their travels camping or in their camper vans.
"My passion is about making items but also sourcing and using practical products that make outdoor life easier. My pride possession is my VW camper van who I've called Thelma. I converted the van myself inside and am always looking for ways to improve it and come up with solutions to enjoy using it even more. I also enjoy the exterior of the vehicle, face lifting and customising to give it a unique look.
I love the outdoors and just keeping it simple. The Wood Project has become all about items that are designed well and that people can use on their adventures. The aim is for The Wood Project to be the place to seek out the next exciting product, to make your van your own and head off for adventures in the woods!"
