About BlackBrook

Andy’s background as an engineer’s patternmaker has ensured that he has the skills to make handcrafted, bespoke items from both wood and composite materials; with an eye for attention to detail and the ability to select the best materials for the job – from the woods down to the adhesive.


His aim is to handwork materials, where possible, with minimal use of machinery – tailoring the product to the purchaser’s personal requirements.


His other forte is in the design of new products and the refinement of existing ones.


What started as a hobby, with archery, soon progressed to a love of competing at the highest level, throughout Europe, and ultimately to the manufacture of his bows.
