Ever since a family friend helped me build a car for my brother's pinewood derby, I have been enchanted by woodworking. Advertisements for power tools fascinated me. In high school, I wanted to sign up for woodshop but never did and regret it. I think it's amazing and admirable what stunning, detailed things people can make with their hands.
You can imagine my excitement when Australian Woodwork reached out to me--two things I love in one! I checked out their site and saw these beautiful items:
And the best part? Every single one is handmade by Australian craftsmen, some even the old-fashioned way without modern tools! Australian Woodwork began 16 years ago with Gregory White and Sarah Davidson through "a stall at Sydney's Rocks Markets and an idea to bring together the fine Australian woodcraft seen in our travels at many country galleries." The skills and techniques of the crafters even inspired Gregory to take up woodworking and build a chair completely from scratch! The family business has grown magnificently since then. Their most popular items are the jewelry boxes. This gorgeous conch-shaped one is my favorite.
One of you lucky readers will win this adorable cheese knife and mouse-and-cheese rest. I am so jealous! This giveaway is open only to the U.S., Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Good luck!
