Making planters

A few days ago an order came in from Robert Thompson's Mouseman - a famous furniture maker in Kilburn, North Yorkshire. Going back over a hundred years, Robert Thompson made furniture characterised with a little mouse hidden somewhere on it. His furniture can be seen in churches, pubs, and lots of other buildings and is much sought after now. 


A visitor centre was set up in the original workshop including a lovely gift shop. Because we were making things with mice on, the owners asked if we could supply their shop and we have been for over twenty years.
