These Handmade wooden gifts are each a unique creation and Hamper House is proud to now be stocking these pieces by Brendan from BG Woodworks. All items are made from a home based workshop in a beautiful area of Healesville, right in the heart of the Yarra Valley, Victoria.
Each piece is truly a work of passion, with the business being launched after the traumatic Black Saturday Bushfires. Brendan is a qualified horticulturalist and worked in the flower growing industry for over 22 years. In 2009 the family home was destroyed in the fires. This sparked a new lease on life to “do what makes you happy”.
Once the family re-established themselves in a new home, Brendan went about setting up the mancave. He bought a small lathe and taught himself how to turn after watching hours and hours of YouTube videos. After many failings he started to create some beautiful items.
Brendans love for transforming a piece of firewood into something beautiful and functional was growing and so did the lathes! His wife, Cherry, started to take pens, bowls, cheese knives to the local markets where he was being commended on his work and, in particular, his quality finishes which is what he prides himself on. Brendan is a perfectionist and his woodturning is no exception each piece made is unique and beautiful in it’s own right.
The beautiful pieces created by Brendan are gifts which will be treasured and each one is absolutely unique, they really add a special touch to gifts, with a true Australian feel.
We will be introducing new products in the range as we get access to them, but being a small boutique producer supply of these items is strictly limited, so if you want something get in quick while we have them in stock
