About Fraser Dodds
Based in Strathaven Fraser Dodds has had an interest in woodworking all of his life. Since watching his grandfather undertake woodworking as a hobby Fraser's interest has now become a full time venture under the title of the Baldy Carpenter.
Fraser's style is, wherever possible to include the 'waney edge'
of the timber in all of his pieces. Using locally sourced native
hardwoods Fraser has been able to keep the wood miles of the
products to a minimum while also giving the buyer the exact
knowledge of where the timber was grown. Native Woods used include
Elm, Beech, Sycamore, Yew, Maple, Ash, Oak, Birch and Walnut.
Fraser has developed his skills through the years producing occasional pieces for friends and family but now finds a renewed passion for expanding his portfolio.
