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.

LOST BOYS

Scripture warns that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy and this is exactly what is happening to our young men - anxiety, porn addiction, suicide and confusion.

There are many people worse off than us and we need your help.  When I'm not woodworking or answering endless emails I'm trying to learn more about how we can help those in need. If you would like to support this work please consider a donation to https://www.yfc.org.au/lost_boys

Some people just need the support of a friend, someone to show they care.

Or you can also donate here and I will forward the money on to those who are helping to fight this problem head on.

Beautiful custom wood pieces, I ordered a custom sign and asked if Andrew could make something very different to his... normal pieces as well. He was very thoughtful with his work, the custom pieces are incredibly well made, and his customer service was second to none. I would highly recommend Andrew's work and will order again in the future for sure!read more

The sign we received from Andrew exceeded our expectations! We knew what it was going to look like as Andrew provided... proof concepts, however in person the sign is mind blowing! We are so proud to display this out the front of our house and am worried it may be stolen it looks that great! Thanks Andrew for such a wonderful product and service.read more

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.
