The New Forest Trust wants to show the world what is being achieved by Professionals, non-Professionals and those learning to make furniture from wood.
The New Forest Trust stages an inspiring Fine Crafted Wood Exhibition each year in The Pavilion at the New Forest and Hampshire County Show.
The Future of the New Forest is more certain and sustainable if its timber continues to be used to make useful things, because this ensures resources return to the Forest to pay for its conservation. Professionals are invited to exhibit pieces that demonstrate their styles, design and craftsmanship, while those in training are invited to demonstrate their skills by participating in the competition judged by three professionals.
All the pieces of furniture on show can be offered for sale. The public, adults and children, are also invited to vote for their favorite piece of furniture on display.
All this can be seen in the beautiful Pavilion at the Show – a fine piece of wood craftsmanship in itself – and a beautiful place to unwind and browse the inspiring pieces.
