What does Carraig na Rón mean?
This is the Gaelic translation of ‘Seals Rock’. We called our business this because we live right beside the Atlantic Ocean and there is a seal colony here in Glassagh bay. Every day when the tide goes out a herd of seals gather on the rocks. They haul themselves onto the rocks to dry off and rest.
What materials do you use?
I mostly use oak, mahogany, teak, pitch pine and sometimes bog oak. I also use birch plywood and oak/mahogany faced MDF as well as Slate.
Where do you find your wood?
In my Dad’s shed! I also search for reclaimed floor-boards, old doors etc. at reclaimed sites or online.
