Alex’s workshop is nestled in amongst Tasmanian ferns and eucalyptus, completely at one and open to nature. He sources all of his wood from trees on his property, planting at least one new sapling for every one he fells. He is a master craftsman, cutting and shaping the wood like butter until he works it into beautiful furniture.

For this video Alex cut down a tree on Tuesday and had a finished chair by Friday. It was an absolute pleasure to be in his workshop watching him create.
