SCAM ALERT! WE DO NOT OFFER WOODWORKING PLANS - PLEASE DO NOT DEAL WITH ANY COMPANY CLAIMING ON SCREEN TO BE US OFFERING 16000 WOODWORKING PLANS
We recently had a customer call us asking where his order for woodworking plans was.
It transpired that a scamming operation based in the US had used our business contact details, name and web presence to get this person to pay them money and no plans ever turned up.
This happened completely without our knowledge or participation in any way. It looks like a business identity theft.

The trade in any products containing a range of wood species generally known as Rosewood (especially dalbergia species) has been banned following their listing on CITE endangered species registers. This is an unfolding story and has been causing upsets for our suppliers - the species were added to a watch list in October 2016 and to a full listing only weeks later - but it has implications for our dealings so far with Veritas in Canada, who are switching their Bubinga - Guibourtia spp - handle products to Torrified Maple and Marples in Sheffield who have switched already from using plantation East Indian Rosewood - Dalbergia latifolia - to North American black walnut - Juglans nigra. We have quite a few Marples and Veritas lines in Rosewood and will run stocks down on a first come first served basis.
Just listed our own in-house made offering for customers who need a meaty knock-down jointing system for bed frames and work benches which can be a hassle when moving house.
