Australian Woodwork is a small family-run business that specialises in the retail of fine woodwork, made by Australia's leading artisans and designer/makers utilising sustainable, Australian native timbers.
Australian Woodwork was started 16 years ago by us, Gregory White and Sarah Davidson, with a stall at Sydney's Rocks Markets and an idea to bring together the fine Australian woodcraft seen in our travels at many country galleries. Aware of this rich vein of skill and artistry that quietly existed, we thought that the local and overseas markets would appreciate it too. We proceeded to open our flagship store in Sydney's Darling Harbour in 2000, followed by our Hunter Valley Gallery in 2005. These are both now closed, which has allowed us, joined by our son Ben, the freedom to concentrate on our online shop. Here, customers will find the same wide range of products made by the many talented woodworkers with whom we have worked over the years.
Australia has some of the best timbers in the world, well known for their beauty and durability, encompassing a variety of colour, grain and hardness that makes them suitable for many purposes - from railway tracks and bridges through to fine furniture and homewares. We have a broad range of products, from turned wooden bowls, chopping boards and salt & pepper mills to jewellery boxes and chess sets; from hand-carved birds to writing pens and rocking horses, all made using traditional techniques but with modern technology. Good contemporary design is of the utmost importance in our choice of products, ensuring their durability and longevity, guaranteeing they will be cherished and kept - the antiques of the future.
