NO ORDERS FOR NESTS BEING TAKEN. TUBS ONLY

I'll only be making nests to sell as in-stock items until my back orders are fulfilled, and then that's probably it.

I'd like to say it's been fun, but in reality it's been an unrelenting nightmare that's destroyed my health and any semblence of a normal life for the past 6 years.

I'm done with making some of the best gear in the world, while at the same time living in abject poverty. I'm done with the constant worry of finding the money for materials. I'm done with the constant worry of someone wanting a refund and it setting me back for months and the knock-on effects that ensue. I'm done with never being able to buy myself anything or take a break. And most of all, I'm done with abuse and threats from folk who have no fucking clue what I sacrifice in order to try and keep people happy.

I believe there is money to be made at this, just not by me. A business like this requires capital and enthusiasm. I've never had the former and I'm completely out of the latter.
If someone thinks they'd like to give it a go, I'm happy to sell ownership of my designs and provide training. Just drop me a line.

Welcome to OookWorks.

I make innovative lightweight camping and backpacking gear particularly suited to the needs of UK and Northern European users.

The range includes custom inners for tents and shelters, custom groundsheets and footprints, and I often have new ideas that are being developed and tested so it's worth having a look at the OookBlog now and again.


All Oookworks designs are handmade to order, by me, right here in Scotland, so specific requirements can be catered for.

Happiness is a 2OookStar in the Scottish Highlands
" Dear Sean, 

Well after a 4 day backpack from Strathcarron to Fort Augustus I can safely say the 2OookStar for the TS is fantastic. 
As you know I am 6'3" and my brother is 5'9" so space is always an issue in so called 2 person tents. No such problem in the 2OookStar. Not only was it long enough, my most common issue, but the width allows you to store heaps of gear inside and protected from the elements.

The workmanship is first rate as are the materials and of course you got it to me in just 4 weeks. 

At 600g on my scales with the stuff sack, plus the TS at 750g (that includes all pegs, lines and stuff sack) means a total weight of just 1350g for what is an enormous amount of space coupled with the knowledge the TS is bombproof. 

Many thanks once again Sean. 
I do hope your company goes from strength to strength and well done on getting it back up and running again. "

Cunning Oook Tip:
Make your own Cunning Doobrie.

If you use Black Diamond Trail trekking poles, a perfect pole joining Doobrie can be made from a short length of 12mm steel tube. You can buy it by the metre from B&Q for about 4 quid.
A 170mm length weighs about 30g and works a treat. Look at some of the photies of the OookNests and you'll see it.
