La Fabrique de Copeaux: Crafting Timeless Woodwork in the Heart of Auvergne

La Fabrique de Copeaux: A Journey into Artisanal Woodcraft

Nestled in the scenic Livradois Forez natural park of Auvergne, La Fabrique de Copeaux is more than just a workshop—it's a hub of creativity where passion for woodwork meets the beauty of handcrafted artistry. Founded by Mickaël, a devoted artisan with deep roots in carpentry, this one-man studio exemplifies the true essence of craftsmanship.

From Forest to Workshop: A Sustainable Approach to Woodworking

At La Fabrique de Copeaux, every piece begins with locally sourced wood, handpicked from the surrounding forests. Mickaël's commitment to sustainability is evident in his choice of materials like chestnut, oak, cherry, and walnut, which are worked meticulously by hand to minimize waste. This respect for wood as a noble and delicate material is a testament to his dedication to environmental stewardship and quality craftsmanship.

A Legacy of Craftsmanship Passed Down Through Generations

Mickaël's journey in woodworking is inherited from his forefathers, blending traditional techniques with modern design sensibilities. Every creation at La Fabrique de Copeaux is a product of his personal involvement in all stages of design—from the initial sketch to the final touch. This includes drawing, prototyping, sawing, planing, and sanding, ensuring that each piece not only meets high standards of quality but also carries a piece of history and passion.

Photography and Promotion: Capturing the Essence of Woodwork

An avid photographer, Mickaël takes great care in capturing the aesthetic and functional beauty of his creations, showcasing them in a light that reflects their true value. This attention to detail extends beyond the workshop, influencing how each piece is presented to the world.
