WoodWorks Studio & Workshop…

This is where it all happens – here you will find a special place, with stacks of wood, special hand built machines, sawdust and contented woodworkers! Dean and his fellow craftsmen are dedicated to bring you unique timber products made with excellence and pride.

Our workshop is a humming, bustling space filled with an air of anticipation and craftsmen concentrating with the work at hand. There is something new everyday – a challenge to solve, new projects to look forward to and a lot of sanding and finishing, that no one really loves, but rewards in the end!

Many of Dean’s designs are inspired by natural forms, and are translated into reality through the use of a range of manufacturing technologies & processes – all of which are “home-made” from recycled machines and sourced parts. These have evolved from from the necessity to create his unique forms.

Our daily tasks consists of a complex interaction of processes which have been developed to make our work more creative, productive and satisfying…here is a sample of activities to show what life is like in our busy workshop!

Don’t just settle…modify your gear to suit what you make…
