David Voigt has tirelessly worked on his unique representation of the Australian landscape over the past five decades. He developed and pursued an exciting and visual way to present the bond between light and subject – the two requisite elements of any depiction of the landscape.
Bungendore Wood Works Gallery Founder and Artistic Director David Mac Laren received a much un-anticipated letter recently informing him that he has been awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the Honorary division within the Australian honours system.

A young couple came across my X-Frame dining tables design on the Wood Works website and contacted me through our online enquiry form. They were seeking a custom designed dining table to complement their recently renovated house by Robert Henry Architects.
We have some great new work by local ACT wood worker Robin Cromer. One of our favourites is a two bowl set titled “Eleanor’s Oak”.
The bowls are made from a historic Pin Oak planted by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Canberra on 4th September 1942. The U.S. Embassy donated a portion of the timber to the Woodcraft Guild ACT Inc. after the tree fell during a windstorm in January 2015.
Wood turner Chris Mitchell has new products that we are excited to share.
The elegant Salt bowls are made from various Tasmania timbers; Myrtle, Huon Pine, Celery Top Pine, Blackwood & Sassafras.
More new work by local ACT Wood Worker Robin Cromer showcasing a range of techniques and exceptional craftsmanship.
