Mark and Linda Smyth - The Crafty Fox (Isle of Man)

He fell in love with wood turning after having a go on his friends Lathe. He began creating items for his own enjoyment and tastes but found that there was a market for high quality, bespoke products and began selling his goods locally.

His products include mirrors, bowls and candle holders, created in a range of woods including Ash, Sycamore, Beech and the unusual Burr wood which due to its nature, provides a mixture of colours and patterns , making unusual, one off pieces which can’t be replicated.

Marks wife Linda also has a love of crafts and together their venture “The Crafty Fox” was born 4 years ago, delivering a range of items which they create from their home in Foxdale. They are able to combine their talents, with Mark carving the wood required for Linda’s wooden products and Linda using her creative flair to produce beautiful household items including plaques, cushions and scarf hangers along with her ever popular family trees.

Linda and Mark are always happy to discuss personalised commissions and you can contact them via their Facebook page –
