Location: Philippines

I am an Australian who has been making custom furniture in Perth, Australia for more than 20 yrs. In 2009 I moved to the Philippines when my wife was transferred here by IBM for the second time.

I built a house here and set up a workshop as well. For the last few years I have been building custom furniture here in Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines.


I am now training local Finishing Carpenters (The name for cabinet makers here) how to make furniture the traditional way. Not a financially profitable exercise but emotionally, very rewarding.
