Inspired by some of my previous work, my client wanted some pieces designed and made using the same local timbers. Blackbutt and Silver Ash. She also wanted her pieces to be interchangeable so she could move them around the house. We came up with these freestanding bedside tables, a chest of drawers, one wardrobe (that I forgot to photograph!) and a built in drawer unit.

For a while now Iv been following the work of Laura McCusker and Pete Howard on line and on Instagram and on a recent trip to Hobart, my Girl and I felt the need to head over to their workshop and introduce ourselves.
It was great to touch base and have a look at where all their furniture is made. As soon as I stepped into the historic building I strangely felt at home. I don't know if it was the smell of a workshop or how comfortable the pair made us feel. But one things for sure, we both knew this was a pretty special experience and it was good to actually get to know them a little. They also gave us a load of local knowledge about what to do, and where to go.
It was great to meet one of Australia's finest furniture makers.

These side tables were headed to a little gallery called MONA. No biggie.
Peter Howard. AKA handsom Pete.
Whilst in the area, I pulled into check out The Wooden Boat Centre.

Here are just a few pieces from my ever growing personal collection all designed here in Billinudgel, Northern New South Wales.
