Hi Patrick  Just a wee note to thank your good lady for the time she took to let my brother and I browse through shop albeit that you were closed on Thursday, it was very kind of her to do so, and I am pleased to say that we both found what we were looking for. It wasn’t easy as you have quite a selection on display.  So once again thanks for your help and please pass on our thanks to your good lady who took the time to accommodate us.  Kind regards

Patrick,  The yew was delivered this evening. The boards are very nice!   I want to thank you again for your extra efforts getting these boards to me. It seems these days it is hard to find business people, like you, who are men or women of their word and who put a lot of stock in customer service.  I hope we can do business again in the future.  Sincerely,
Richard, Tallahassee,  Florida, USA, July 2016
Hi patrick  The sycamore has arrived safely.  We wrestled and checked it all over.  It was beautifully packed and although we have not tried it is situ it is more gorgeous than I could ever have imagined.  I doubt we would ever have got the finish to the degree you have….we would not have realised that such a potential of beauty was waiting to be achieved.  So thanks and i will be in touch once i get it placed sincerely catherine, Dundee, February 2016

I have just received the boards today for shelving for my new kitchen and they are perfect.   Thank you so much – I know people like to complain if things take a long time/ not correct etc, but not many people say how thrilled they are and impressed with how quickly they were received.  I only hope I can find somewhere else to put some more!

Dear Patrick
When the piece of yew arrived I was in shock for 2 days at the sheer size of it,  but fell in love with it immediately!  I have just had it bandsawed to create 2 lengths that are a mirror image of each other,  and it is even more beautiful.  I am now planning the length of the shelves and am so excited that I will have so many beautiful shelves.  My partner will be ordering some too as he is very jealous of my yew!  The speed of the delivery was also exceptional.  Thank you.

Hi Patrick
Just a note to thank you for the good service you provided during our purchase of the Burr Poplar. As you can see from the photographs the wood was used to create a cross for St Bernadette’s Church in Erskine. The cross was used in our service on Sunday andand now stands on the sanctuary during other services.  The cross was well received by the congregation into our church. If at all possible , could you please pass on our grateful thanks to the Minister of Greyfriars church in Edinburgh. For us it fulfills the easter message. No doubt I will call in again for future projects. Kindest regards,
Gerry ( Erskine, Glasgow, April 2011)

Brian (Albuquerque, New Mexico USA, Aug09)
have to say.. your presence is such an important and welcomed factor of the festival – it would just not be the same without you in the woodmarket!  I always receive great feedback about your wood…and… often get enquiries through out the year … refering to the ‘stand selling the lovely wood’ …. to which I always respond … with your contact details… infact.. I am sure I got another enquiry just recently.. from someone wanting to make a musical instrument…!
Carole (March 09)

Hi Patrick
The Holly arrived this morning .Well done .Its nice timber and should do the trick .

Liam (April 08)Hi
I am absolutely delighted with a purchase I made last June when you showcased some of your products at the ‘tree-fest’ in Edinburgh.  I love the elm shelf which had one side flat against wall and the rough edges of the side exposed to the room.  I think it was the 590 or 593 style.
You do a fab service and I am keen to support you to a greater extent.
Phyl (May08)
It was twenty plus years since the last time I had picked up or used a plane or pairing chisel. I am pleased to say that I had many lessons from Patrick covering very basic skills to more precise joint making methods and design.  At the end of my time with Patrick I felt so confident in what I had been taught that I built a designer workshop in my garden and have begun making pieces of furniture, mostly small tables.  I can do nothing but highly recommend Patrick for tuition, who in the end has become a good friend.
John (April 08)
