Hugh Makin Workshop
I am an artisan and handcrafter of contemporary bespoke furniture. My areas of specialization include free standing furniture and fixed cabinetry for the home or workplace. I source unusual Australian timbers as well as reclaimed, salvaged, specialty and exotic timbers. The wood I have in stock is salvaged from the local region, this means I know its provenance and can offer my clients rare timbers which are not only ethically obtained but also makes their piece distinctly unique.
After completing a Fine Art, Drawing degree at RMIT and working for various cabinet makers and shop fitters in Melbourne I traveled to Vancouver, where under the guidance of a renowned furniture maker and designer I learned to make furniture. After returning home I moved to Castlemaine to start my own business.
