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 and national parks for future generations and keeping Aussie jobs here in the land down under.

Wood is simply the most perfect renewable resource and I think we should be proud of what we have in Australia, especially Victoria with our timber industry supporting so many Aussie families and industries in all our states and territories!

My thoughts on logging in Victoria.

Although many argue about how much we should or should not be logging in this state I think it’s important to find a balance so we can hold on to these important fundamental industries, especially when they work well and are profitable.

Let’s not forget they also support many other businesses and industry down the line, not just the local area and communities directly involved. (more…)

Projects & News 2019

Welcome to 2019, already booked up the first two months!

  • WAITING LIST…(Jan-Feb 2019) growing longer daily SORRY!
    Current lead time is roughly 6 weeks from the payment date to postage/delivery date.
    Signs ordered this week will most likely arrive late Feb.
  • I cannot estimate an exact date at this stage as there are a lot of orders to do work through.

If you have already ordered/paid for a sign and are still waiting for delivery please note that it is coming eventually
There’s a backlog I’m working through sorry and already posting out the maximum capacity I can make and pack each week.

Wishing all my customers a happy & healthy 2019!

Timber News
I’ve been using a lot more Victorian Ash since moving back to Heyfield and going along to the trade days at ASH (Australian Sustainable Hardwoods)

Here’s one of my Vic Ash signs hanging on a gate.
Deep black engraved lettering, natural decking oil finish.

Looking forward to making many more Chopping Boards and other Vic Ash products in the near future so stay tuned and let’s see what we can do with this beautiful locally grown hardwood.

Beginning of a new year woodworking, I’m back in my old workshop!

2018 has turned out to been a busy year already! With a backlog of custom made signs over the Christmas period I’m only just catching up on things now, I’ve been busy moving my workshop and timber stock, renovating my house in Heyfield and preparing some nice new Alpine Oak (Victorian Ash) kitchen bench tops.

Of all the timber I’ve purchased over the years these two bench tops are going to be mine forever, I will be looking at them for the rest of my life so it feels good to finally do a project for myself for a change.

Please bookmark this page or view and follow me on Instagram and Facebook for the latest photos of my woodwork.

Thanks for your interest in my work.
