SUICIDE RATE IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH, especially young men in Victoria!
Far more than what we have lost from COVID.  Mental health issues are also increasing substantially.

graphical representation of suicide rates australia
As you can see the suicide rate for young Australian men is at an all time high.

There are many people worse off than us and I need your help.  When I'm not woodworking or answering endless emails I'm trying to help those in need. If you would like to support my work and help the oppressed on the streets in the Gippsland area please make a small donation. Every bit helps, I will use the money to buy coffee and food for the homeless & addicted and offer some hope where I can.  Some people just need the support of a friend, someone to show they care.

There's more to life than work!

Hi Andrew.
We received our timber sign this week. We are extremely happy with it.
Thank you

Hello Andrew and Natasha,
The Dunwurkin sign arrived a half hour ago – I am absolutely thrilled with it – and have previewed it outside with the Sanctuary sign you crafted for me. Have attached updated photos.
I’m going to have to make myself wait until 5 Aug when hubby retires before it gets put back up.

Best wishes and continued success
Regards Lyn McLernon – 30th May 2016

Hi Andrew,
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the sign you have made. It is better than what I had expected. Your skill and attention to detail as resulted in a beautiful birthday gift that I can now give to someone close to me.
Please let me know if there is a way that I can provide positive feedback via your website for other potential customers to view.

Thank you.

Kind regards, Sam – 22 June 2016

Andrew was a caring and thoughtful professional from start to finish. He intuitively understood what I was looking for and sensitively made some suggestions around design of signs for a special space for my husband. He responded to any queries promptly and went out of his way to investigate different options for us. Andrew was enthusiastic about the project. I was also very reassured by his ethical approach to business. Andrew’s website showed his obvious skill in different projects which made me confident in his work. The work arrived earlier than anticipated and was carefully wrapped to protect it. As an added bonus, the kids have spent hours tonight jumping on bubble wrap. The signs have been beautifully made and are treasured by my husband who has been really excited to talk through different display options. I would recommend Andrew’s work to anyone.

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 and ... Read more
