At the beginning of December the RoughStuffers pulled together family and friends - an eclectic bunch.
Some ran stalls selling their up-cycling designs, ceramics, blacksmithed knives and the odd sword. Others displayed handmade glass designs, jewellery, fashion and, of course, lots of bespoke RoughStuff oak boards.
We mixed this all up with lashings of Wensleydale cheese, mince pies, copious amounts of wine and about 200 friends and neighbours to create our usual mad start to the Christmas festivities.
We've also been out and about to see what the locals think of our chopping boards.
Our top salesman, RoughStuffer Johnny went down a storm in Bovingdon village hall whilst Mr and Mrs RoughStuff (Matt and Toni) met the well-heeled set at Butlers Farm, the Royal Masonic School for Girls and lastly Tring Market.
Here's to a very merry Christmas and an inventive new year.
If you can't find that Xmas present for the person who seems to have everything, we have the answer - a handmade RoughStuff oak carving board. Have a look at our shop.
