Dave McKeen began creating articles in wood by transferring his engineering skills in metal to the element of wood. The creative opportunities he discovered from wood have since become a passion. He has a long held respect for the powers of nature and feels that through his work he is helping to preserve this precious commodity. All Dave’s work is produced from Scottish woods that have been felled due to disease, ageing or coppicing.
Dave does not believe in felling trees for the purpose of his work, hence the majority of his work is produced from Elm, Burr Elm, Scottish Yew and Beech.
