Crafted by Chris
Chris may have come to the art of woodcraft late in life, however the creative streak was nurtured early in life in Scotland, with the intervening years leading a corporate life.
High quality designed and crafted pens are the centre point of my work, YES, I do make pens from $25.00 through to $375.00 using rare woods, special inlays including sterling silver. There are numerous themed pens all with individual wood inlays. (the largest collection in Australia)
Many wood craftsmen forget the art of fine finishes; this is an area that you will see I specialise in just getting it right even if it does take a little longer. My preferred finish is a selection of 18 separate natural oils that are food safe and hardens to a hardwearing finish.
I design and craft many items from freehand carving, general wood turning using rare or hard to find timber, it is the uniqueness of these timbers that give a point of difference.
Items you will see on visiting are, letter openers, specially designed bottle stoppers, pill & toothpick holders, a range of clocks many of which are made from burl, cutting boards, and recently developed a large range of home wares cutlery with rarewoods.
My work is ideally suited to gifts and special corporate occasions.
