From bespoke joinery to outdoor shelters we’re passionate about wood!

At Woodscott we pride ourselves on the technical excellence of our work and our attention to detail. We only use high quality timber and all ancilliary fixtures are chosen for their suitability. It is our intention that everything we produce is built to last. We always carve our mark into every piece as we are proud of what we make and we find our clients are too.


From our 4500 square feet of workshop space in Axminster, Devon, we have the craftsmen and equipment to produce anything in wood! From windows and doors for a listed building, to garden furniture engineered to last for generations.

Over the last decade Woodscott have been developing a loyal customer base of individuals who appreciate the bespoke nature of our work. Each client and their commissions are treated as an individual challenge and opportunity to produce a piece which is pleasing to behold.
