Reza Wood Designs is a Scottish woodcraft business specialising in gifts made from recycled Oak Scotch Whisky Barrels
Reza Wood Designs is a Scottish woodcraft business started in 2014 specialising in Whisky Barrel Gifts, whisky accessories and Whisky Barrel Furniture made from the staves of recycled Oak Scotch Whisky Barrels. It is run by husband and wife team, Ali Fakourpoor and Jenifer Martin.
All products are designed and made by Ali Fakourpoor, in his workshop at the foot of the Campsie Hills just outside Glasgow.
Ali is a furniture maker and wood turner with many years of experience of both production and teaching woodworking skills. Recent projects include producing the Commonwealth Games 2014 Quaichs, Podiums and Medal trays.
Specialising in Whisky Barrel Gifts and Whisky Barrel Furniture we take the staves of Oak Scotch Whisky Barrels no longer required by the distilleries and transform them into gorgeous gifts for any occasion. We make a range of products from pens to tealight holders, whisky tasting trays to platters as well as larger items like our whisky barrel lazy susan spinner, lamps and tables. Each piece is unique, individually crafted and packaged by us and we offer an engraving service so you can personalise with your own special message.
We think it's the little details that make a difference, like our signature tartan ribbon, Harris Tweed inserts for all our tasting trays and certificates for our pens.
We also produce a range of gifts from Scottish Hardwoods including our specially designed whisky Quaich made from Scottish Elm, Oak or Ash. Wood has always been important to us, the most important thing is to work with the wood you have to bring out it's own natural beauty. We love wood with a story and that's why working with whisky barrels is so enjoyable. We never waste materials and Ali likes nothing better than rescuing wood destined for the fire and turning it into something useful, revealing it’s true magical qualities.
We now have customers from around the world as well as a number of stockists across Scotland and it’s our aim to provide the best customer service we can for all our customers whether they be at a craft event, online or trade.
We are always up for a design challenge and love bespoke projects. If you’ve got something special in mind then please get in touch.
