one-off hand crafted treasures in exotic timbers

Welcome to our web site.

BJB ArtInWood is the creation of husband and wife team Barry and Janine Broadbent who live and work in Mellor, a lovely village in the beautiful Ribble Valley near Preston in Lancashire. Barry and Janine both come from very different backgrounds but their love of creating beautiful objects in wood and other materials has evolved and blossomed over the years.


Our inspiration is drawn from the natural world in general such as the sea shore, plant life and the elements, always striving to create unusual, inspirational and distinctive pieces of sculpture, relief carving, hors d’ouvres trays, dip trays, turned items, carved love-spoons, occasional tables and boxes. We use only the best quality timbers, specialising in burr woods and exotics together with a variety of other materials producing items of single or mixed mediums. We each have our own unique and diverse style of creating using a mixture of traditional and modern methods.

We are happy to undertake individual commissions, either to your design or ours, anything from custom made water-wheels to dip trays, boxes to tables. Our working ethos is attention to detail so the finished product whatever it may be will be truly professional and totally unique.
