We’re feeling jolly, can you tell?
Well, it’s been murky old January week here at Cocking Sawmills so by all accounts we should be down in the dumps. But no, not us! Instead we’ve been unloading and reloading the big kiln with Cedar.

Here you see before you a hand built wall of English Cedar of Lebanon and it was designed and specified by the clever people at TOAST.
They’re a soulful company who sell beautiful clothing and homeware, championing natural materials ( like our Cedar of Lebanon) and artisan works, handmade items and small production runs.
TOAST are renowned for bringing soul to the high street and we’re thrilled that they chose some of our locally grown Cedar of Lebanon for a shop interior project on the Kings Road.
