About Us

James Foster has been working with wood in various ways for over forty years. As a young man he trained as a cabinet maker and then become a builder for many years, with his own company.

The main stay of the business is now garden art and children's toys, designed for the individual. From this, the Pole People have developed.

James is a skilled woodworker and his products reflect his flair for eye-catching design, enthusiasm and sense of humour. James enjoys a challenge and will make anything, from your ideas or his, to suit your needs.

The types of products that James makes almost defies classification, but we've done it anyway!
