About Us

Frank is a qualified cabinetmaker and has been involved in woodwork from a very early age. At 14 he commenced his apprenticeship at Hagan Furniture in Toowoomba restoring antiques and making reproductions. On completion of his apprenticeship Frank worked for various restorers and furniture makers throughout Brisbane and interstate. 

 In  2004 Frank completed a fine arts degree with honours from the Australian National University. After completing his degree Frank spent time working in a furniture conservation workshop. During this time he worked on many important pieces from private collections, galleries and institutions.

Passing on his skills, knowledge and passion for furniture is important to Frank. As well as teaching privately from his workshop he has also taught cabinetmaking to apprentices at Skill Tech.  In 2007 Frank opened his own workshop.

Philosophy Ethos (Furniture making) :

Frank believes that a clear understanding of client’s design objectives and sense of aesthetics are vital. The combination of good quality materials (solid timber and decorative veneers) and hand cut joinery creates a piece of furniture that can be enjoyed for many generations.

Philosophy Ethos (Antique Furniture restoration) :

Antique furniture is imbued with a sense of history and time. The marks (patinations), colour, materials and style tell a story, these qualities need to be carefully maintained. Frank is highly skilled in all aspects of restoration and his professional approach is aligned to the principals of conservation, which ensures your much-loved antiques are treated properly.
