How we do it

If you are looking for a quality timber piece, whether it’s custom furniture or something small like stair treads or maybe something completely unusual like a skateboard deck, if it’s made from Australian hardwood we can make it for you. We work on both large scale commercial jobs as well as small scale private jobs.

What makes our product unique

It’s the breath of authenticity. We work closely with our local timber suppliers to ensure longstanding and sustainable relationships. Our timber is selected with the desired finish of the end product in mind. We custom design each element to ensure not only a beautiful finish but also quality craftsmanship. And with decades of experience in furniture making we can ensure your piece will be unique and has that ‘Wow’ factor.
