  • 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.
