Ullapool Box Creations

handmade in Scotland


My name is Alan Macritchie and I am a self-taught woodcrafter.

I chose wood as my medium, something that I have had a life long admiration and then, in early 2011 started to learn traditional woodworking through Google and Youtube. I started my journey making jewellery boxes but now concentrate on making Sgian Dubhs/Brews and Kilt Pins out of the most amazing Scottish and Exotic hardwoods and Scottish Deer Antler. My current pieces can be viewed and purchased through my Etsy website:
