Barley Wood Ltd - A Passion for Wood

Barley Wood is Mike Dean (And his staff), a specialist wood-turner working in Westfield, East Sussex in the heart of the English countryside.

Barley Wood has two main areas of business and the first of those is the corporate work providing services to builders, joinery companies, home owners and architects. Barley Wood supply complete staircases, newels, spindles, curtain poles, porch columns, kitchens and any custom requirement a builder may need. In fact, if it can be turned on a lathe, Barley Wood can supply it!

The second area of Barley Wood's business is the custom, bespoke wood-turning undertaken by Barley Wood owner Mike Dean. Ever since he was a boy he has been turning wood and he has been commissioned by many well known figures including Tommy Walsh and Elton John!

Mike Dean is a specialist wood-turner and he accepts commissions for all sorts of different projects. In the video on the left is a (very long!) first cut of Mike making a 3ft high mushroom for a client, The Wild Mushroom Restaurant in Westfield, East Sussex.

Mike has also created plates, bowls and bespoke clocks by hand. Other specialities are decorative items such as urns, vases and jewellery boxes. Some of his plates are so highly prized they have been sold in London for in excess of £4,000!

Barley Wood offers a vast array of exciting and unlimited possibilities in wood, so if you would like to discuss your own ideas please get in touch – Mike would love to hear from you.
