How to get wood for the Christmas tree
The best Christmas tree in Ireland could be coming to your local market.
Woodworking specialist Ardwyn Scott says the new wood is going to be a very different colour and it will be made from the wood that he sells to customers.
“There is a lot of interest and we are hoping that it will have a good response,” he said.
“It is a wood product, it is made from old wood, it’s a very traditional wood product.”
The colour is a bit of a surprise for me because the wood used for the tree is not as bright as it looks when it is new.
“Ardwyn has been selling wood finishing products to the public for decades.”
When I was young I used to buy new wood and finish it,” he told The Irish Post.”
But I realised that I didn’t need that anymore.
“I think people will see that there is a great opportunity here to get a new Christmas tree and it’s very much going to sell.”
The company has already got a few orders in the bag and is currently working on the packaging.
“We’ve got a number of orders already in hand,” he added.
“As the company grows, we’ll have a wider range of products.”
What we want to do is to create a more beautiful Christmas tree.
“People have a choice of different coloured wood, different finishes and the wood is all about individuality.”
If you want a really bright, fresh colour and a really smooth finish, then I can give you a new wood.
