About Our Business
From the Workshop has been running since early 2015. We are small (currently two of us) and make all our products from scratch in our workshop. We use equipment such as CNC routers and lasers to product quite unique products, often involving maps and various boxes! Everything is hand finished to a high level.
Our most popular product is the Map Box which comes with many different map designs. We are also now pushing our relatively new Wall Maps which are solid oak or maple with a detailed map design.
