Family Run, Family Fun

Welcome to From The Oak Tree.  We are excited to introduce you to our personalised oak chopping boards and oak gifts.  From The Oak Tree is a family run business situated in the grounds of our family home within the heart of rural Leicestershire.  Along side the joinery workshop, our children, dogs, extended family and donkeys, can all be found co-existing rather well together!!  Sam has been a skilled carpenter for as long as he can remember, learning traditional carpentry methods before he could really speak;  it’s ingrained as they say!  Much of his carpentry career has been spent building our sister company, Hortus Ligneous Ltd,  a bespoke joinery business, manufacturing oak framed garages, garden rooms, gates and doors, to meet the client's specifications.                                                       
After ten years of marriage and four beautiful children, Charlotte and Sam decided to expand their joinery portfolio and combine Charlotte’s interests in “all things nice and all things personalised” and Sam’s carpentry skills and vision to create a high end quality oak chopping board range.  The vision turned to reality and then the range grew…expanding into the kitchen and home then spilling into the boot room and into the garden.  Together with a small team of skilled craftsmen, From The Oak Tree is able to offer durable, long lasting and attractive personalised oak pieces that will be around for a life time. Charlotte also loves sales (and so do the children funnily enough!) so getting out there and show casing products she is proud to say her husband and the team made, couldn't be more fun!!  Here at From The Oak Tree we pride our selves in long lasting amazing products and we can't wait to share them with you too!
