Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Unique gifts for your unique Dad – There’s nobody like him!

It’s often said that men are hard to buy presents for, but we disagree. You just have to take a walk in their shoes and see where that leads you – and one place you will definitely arrive at is woodwork; think men’s sheds, the honesty of timber, made by hand, sanded and polished, smooth to the touch. And then, all that in the shape of something both useful and cool!

Where to find it? Our online store is full of Australian-made timber products that Dads will love! These are our top 10 picks for Father’s Day gifts based on their being useful, well designed, good-looking and very cool -  like your Dad?

Orb Pair Dark and Light Salt & Pepper Mills

Simple! Salt in the light one, pepper in the dark – for the practical man

Australian citizens

You may well know someone who has, or is about to become an Australian citizen – in 2016-17, a total of 137,750 individuals from at least 190 different countries, an amazing melting pot of people, attended their citizenship ceremony, made their pledge and accepted their certificate in council chambers and town halls across the country, with mostly great joy and thankfulness.

New found friends and family often want to mark this important occasion with a special gift, something heartfelt, and it has to come from Australia, that’s a must. Australian Woodwork with its range of hand-made wooden products, in our beautiful native timbers is a good place to start looking for that gift that says “Welcome to Australia”!

We are taking a break!

We're on Holidays! Gone Fishin'

Since we made the big move to the beautiful Northern Rivers town of Maclean which meant setting up a new workroom and all that goes with relocating -  losing things amidst the confusion, finding them and losing them again, the usual stuff - we have not had a real break from work. So we are going fishing! We are heading to Aotearoa for 10 days where, with the help of people with deep and ancient Maori knowledge of the seas, we hope to catch some fish and relax and enjoy.

We're still taking orders as per normal, but they will not be shipped out until the morning of Monday the 30th of April 2018.

We hope this does not inconvenience our customers too much and we are always available via email if you have any urgent questions during this time. Thanks!
