These nut crackers are made from Kentish hazel trees, which are hand harvested on a coppice cycle. Coppiced hazel is very fast growing and is a strong and light wood as well as being a renewable resource that promotes woodland wildlife.
They have been designed to fit comfortably in the hand and efficiently crack a nut without shattering shell everywhere.
Sebastian Cox Furniture has become known for developing products, which have brought coppiced timber into contemporary design.
Motivated by environmental sustainability, we seek to re-examine timber use in Britain by turning overlooked and undervalued timber into beautiful and useful objects.
We are gradually returning an overstood mixed woodland to a healthy hazel coppice by making a range of products from the harvested timber for the contemporary design market; and this product that you have purchased contributes to that positive change.
As we grow, we will be able to do the same in more and more woodlands throughout Britain, with the ambitious aim of returning as much as we can of the 2.8m acres of unmanaged British woodland back to a productive and bio-diverse state.
