Where it all began…

At the tender of just 16, Adam Baker started working for Acton Scott, a working farm based in South Shropshire. At Acton Scott, Adam was introduced to Keith Crane, who soon became his professional mentor. At this time, Keith held over 20 years’ experience as a woodwork technician and soon saw the potential Adam had to become an expert within the trade of woodcraft. A great friendship was soon established, and Adam worked closely with Keith to learn and hone his craft.
