Striking cat-shaped light, handmade from bread crates dating back from the 1970s and sourced from Hexham, Northumberland. The wood has been stripped back, hand cut and assembled before being cut out and hand-painted. They are then lightly sanded to give an aged feel and waxed with clear wax for protection. 


All Handmade Tyneside products are handmade entirely from reclaimed or salvaged wood, using traditional carpentry and wood-shop techniques. This means each item is unique and therefore products may vary slightly, to those shown.

  • Handmade Tyneside is a one-man wood shop and design studio based in the North East of England. Everything is handmade, using 100% reclaimed wood sourced from all over Tyneside and Northumberland; from the age-old dance floor of a derelict nightclub to something with the character and heritage of church doors or mahogany lift cladding.

    Every item is unique. Many pieces will be a limited run meaning when the wood runs out, so does the product line.
