Crafting Heritage: Our Story at Turners Of Yorkshire

Based in the West Yorkshire village of Idle, Turners Of Yorkshire are a small family run business making hand crafted quality bespoke furniture, Homewares and Gift items using only 100% reclaimed historic timber sourced locally in Yorkshire. Our passion is finding rare old-growth timber marked by the past and giving this reclaimed timber a new life. We are inspired by art and enchanted by history, and believe the rare opportunities to surround yourself with both must be seized. To achieve both, while protecting the environment, is an opportunity not to be missed.

Turners of Yorkshire was established in 2014 by Nigel Turner in the basement of the family home . His previous venture as a website developer meant that he spent most of his time sitting in an office in front of a computer getting little exercise and not able to take advantage of the beautiful weather he could see from his office window. After acquiring a couple of pitch pine old beams, and making his a fire surround for the house he realised his passion for working with old reclaimed timber and decided to follow in the family tradition and have a go at carpentry.

Historical reclaimed timbers come from old-growth forest trees which were often used to build structures a century or more ago. These old growth timbers, given the length of their growth life and the tightness of their grain, offer durability that is not achievable with contemporary farmed wood. In addition, this timber has had the time to settle, expanding and contracting into a permanent form, leading to notably more stable timber. Our aim is that each piece we create will outlive us, be passed or sold on through generations to come reducing the impact that modern day 'throw away' manufacturing and buying practices are having on the environment.Welcome to Turners Of Yorkshire, where craftsmanship meets sustainability in every piece of handcrafted furniture and unique household item. Nestled in the quaint village of Idle, West Yorkshire, our small family-run business takes pride in creating stunning pieces using 100% reclaimed timber sourced locally in Yorkshire.
