Irish Handmade Unique Wood Turned Gift Ideas

Unique Irish Wood Turned Gifts made by a small local business. One of a kind wooden gifts for every occasion.

When we started Clover Woodcraft, we never realise how much we would learn and appreciate working as a family to complete our beautiful products. Our small Irish business is growing, and we are enjoying working on the lathe and passing the tradition onto the next generation. 

We are passionate about wood turning using Irish grown timbers, to uncover the beauty behind the bark.

We make our products from storm fallen or damage trees. All our products are processed in or workshop, on the borders of Co Kildare, Carlow and Laois. We are lucky to have the space to allow use to store large tree trunks, before processing them into wooden blanks for wood turning or planking them for bread boards. We prefer to let our timbers to dry naturally which can take over 3 years in some cases depending on the time of year the tree was felled. 

Above we have a varied selection of Irish grown sustainable sourced timber. We also try where possible to replace what has been been removed and regular plant trees in our own garden. Our own garden features Ash, Elm, Oak , Horse Chestnut , Apple, Pear , Cherry ,Holly And Sycamore Trees. 

We are able to provide traceability on our wood turned products as we generally process the timber from tree to finished products.

Working with Native wood to produce designer Irish Gifts. 

We worked with native Irish Hardwood including  Ash, Oak, Horse Chestnut, Sweet Chestnut, Beech, Hawthorn and been luck enough to have use Bog Oak in some of our designs. We have also used Pines, Alder, Popular, Cherry, Apple and Irish grown Cypress wood in our products. We love working with natural sourced materials and have also incorporated deer antler into some of our designs.
