Alan Kain designs and manufactures bespoke furniture from native Scottish hardwoods. Alanís business encompasses all aspects of timber production from felling, milling on his sawmill, seasoning and kiln drying the majority of the Scottish hardwoods he uses. This ensures that Alan has control over the quality of the materials used in the construction of his furniture.
