Since equipping a new workshop I have been getting my hand back in, exploring recycled timbers (how stable are they eh?) making boxes , exploring new designs , pushing the boundaries of  fine section Australian hardwood furniture. Great fun.

Fine furniture with a heavy responsibility

Australian hardwoods are some of the most beautiful - yet overlooked - timbers in the world relegated to lower value construction or flooring instead of high value furniture.

My goal is to bring these timbers alive so you can fall in love with them as I have - purely platonic mind you!

Our hardwoods are very different to traditional furniture timbers

Steel and aluminium are both metals -  but they are very different in weight and hardness so we design and use them in different manners.

 

Similarly, Australian hardwoods (steel) and traditional furniture timbers (aluminium) are significantly different so I can design accordingly.
