When looking for a hobby to help him “pass the time in the dark, damp winter months outside of rugby”, after researching a few ideas, including a failed attempt at learning to surf, Toby thought about trying his hand at some carpentry. Fortunately, his girlfriend Hattie agreed that it would be a useful skill to have around the house in the future, so she booked the couple onto a course for his birthday.
Toby and Hattie enjoyed their new found passion so much that they decided to set up their own little side business, ‘The Palleteers’, whereby they take old pallets and recycle them into anything from bits and bobs for the house, to furniture, and even bars for the garden!
A first task was to create the outdoor furniture and bar for a family wedding, and after receiving rave reviews they decided to hire a garage to try and expand the business. Toby commented:
We’ve spent hours whittling away on commissioned items and getting creative, designing and creating new pieces to sell. We love the satisfaction that comes with ‘making something out of nothing’ and hope to share our love of pallets with the world!
So, how can you get your hands on some of this brilliant craftsmanship? Simple! Toby and Hattie will be hosting a stall at a Christmas Market taking place at the Old Success Inn, Sennen, on Monday 13th November.
For supporters of the Cornish Pirates, and others! There are two Christmas bargain opportunities not to be missed. Both will make ideal presents for many!
What started as a hobby for Cornish Pirates full-back Toby May, is now a small business!
