Wooden Display Boxes

I’ve made a variety of wooden display boxes, this one is for bottles of essential oils.

A sneak peak into the workshop goings ons!

Essential Oils Storage/Display

These wooden display boxes have a glass lid with dividers for storing and viewing your collection. Dovetail joinery and beautiful Australian Hardwoods.

They have all been different in their own way.

I took these pictures while I was applying the final coat of Traditional Wax Polish which is the wax I recommend to my customers to maintain the Danish Oil or Shellac finish on my wooden boxes.

I’ve also made large boxes to hold the taller bottles with the rubber eyedropper lids. These are commonly used in homeopathy and for storing medicines or witches potions! See my gallery for more photos.

  • Quality brass hardware
  • Sustainable timber
  • Custom made dividers
  • Dovetail corner joinery.

If you would like to order wooden display boxes for your collection of essential oils bottles please note that there are usually a few different sized bottles, capacity (mls) and lid designs. Please take accurate measurements and let me know how many bottles you would like to store. And yes, I have made them for witches before so don’t be shy! Order one today from my website.

Custom wood sign for an Aussie who loves his Ute

“Everyone in town knows his Ute”

Here’s a custom wood sign I made recently for a customer who lives in a small country town, she wanted it to be a personalised gift for her husband. “Everyone in town knows his Ute” she tells me and sent through a few photos of his Ute and we found a suitable pictures online to work from.

Custom Wood Sign. Rustic edges, engraved and painted pictures.

Here’s the Engraving Simulation I sent to her for approval. The 3D simulation shows exactly what the engraving will look like carved into the timber and finished with matt black enamel paint. I can zoom in using the software to check if any of the pictures need to be fixed up before making your custom timber sign.

Here is the picture of the Ute and other design elements we worked from, his Ute had a cage on the back so I edited the image to suit, added the antenna to the front and spare wheel to the back of the Ute.  This was important because the people in town all recognise his Ute and she wanted it to be a personalised gift for his birthday. He has an Australian cattle dog with him on his run and they keep chickens so these were added in to the image as well.  The tree picture was one I had used in a previous design.

She was very happy with the end result and the sign is now proudly on display at their front door.

My Rustic Cedar signs feature a unique carved edge, this is done by me after engraving.  I prefer to shape my signs myself – no two are the same.  The beautiful grain in Cedar is highlighted by a tinted Decking Oil (made right here in Australia of course).  I’ve made quite a few signs for man caves, sheds, outdoor BBQ areas, even wood-fire pizza ovens which are becoming more popular than ever.  If you’ve been looking for a unique personalised gift for your husband and can’t quite figure out what to buy for ‘the man who has everything’ then join the list of happy customers and order beautiful handcrafted woodwork.

Please follow my blog if you would like to see more of what I make in future. I plan to put more projects up here as they are completed and also some flashbacks of interesting things I’ve been asked to make over the past 12 years so stay tuned.

Let me know what you want written and any special details.  I will reply to your email with a list of font examples along with a quote for your very own personalised custom wood sign.

The signs are posted Australia Wide, international orders are always welcome as well.

Environmentally Friendly

It’s important to know where timber comes from and if there are ethical practices involved in harvesting and sourcing from sustainable forests. Here at Australian Workshop Creations, we only use sustainable or ethically salvaged wood and natural oil finishes that are made in Australia of course. We believe in preserving our old grown forests for future generations and keeping Aussie jobs here in the land down under.
