Woody’s Statement

Starting out with a chainsaw and basic milling gear, I source unwanted timber from farms and houses. I like to think this is environmentally ethical. A lot of this timber is either heaped and burnt or dumped. What a waste!

Inspiration comes from the source and the medium itself.  I find nothing better than opening up an old log to find rich natural colours and mad grain patterns like birdseye, fiddle-back  and lacing. None of this can be manufactured or cultured.  

Using these natural characteristics, I try to create pieces that serve a practical purpose as well as bring a piece of the bush into people’s homes.
