Against the Grain Woodcraft – Handmade Wooden Gifts

Against the Grain wooden gifts logo

My name is Joe McDermott and I have a passion for making hand crafted wooden gifts using native Irish timber.

Unique Wooden Gifts

My bespoke handcrafted ornamental gifts made using sustainable native Irish wood includes wooden table lamps, wall clocks, wine holders and candle holders. My workshop is based near the village of Kilkelly in County Mayo in the west of Ireland. I use Beech, Elm, Ash and all of the timber I use is felled naturally or because it has become dangerous.

I source my timber locally and each piece is lovingly finished by hand.
It is a privilege to work with such beautiful material some of which took hundreds of years to grow.
