“We are surrounded
by wonderful resources,
if care is taken to use them wisely”
Mr T’s Utensils
Tom Turnell, of Mr T’s Utensils, works from The Bothy at the Gibside Estate in Gateshead to create entirely handmade wooden utensils. He believes in combining local materials and traditional hand skills to make items that can be used and valued for generations. We are thrilled to have in stock a selection of chopping boards made of Durham Beech and Ash from Gibside Estate. Each one has been cleft and hewn entirely by hand then finished with 100% linseed oil and 100% pure beeswax.
