The Wood Project is quite simply, all about wood. Founder and wood worker Jenni Kehoe has always had a love for wood.
"For as long as I can remember, I have always been making, creating and tinkering with wood. 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/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. My Mother became an interior decorator and used to work with him, making soft furnishings the old fashioned way by hand. The creativity definitely runs through the blood.
The smell and textures, colours and grains, allow me to create such wonderful looking pieces and form endless ideas. I work with a variety of woods, ideally British sourced and from managed woodlands. All scaffold wood products are only made with reclaimed boards. I love the imperfect rustic and industrial look that scaffold boards create and the beautiful grain and colour that other woods can provide.
Being able to apply the skills I have learnt to create objects that are functional, is the huge driving force behind what I do. I'm always evolving, learning and it never feels like work."
