We chatted to Lee about Buywood and he shared some great stories about some furniture he has created for clients and why he loves what he does.
“We custom make everything which means each piece is unique. We only use solid timber and you know that everything has been made right here in Queensland.”
At the moment, they are expanding their product range to include extension tables and more contemporary designs. Absolutely everything is custom and handmade in Brisbane using solid hardwoods sourced predominantly from around south east Queensland and northern NSW. You can be assured that these pieces utilise traditional joinery techniques and have been made to last.
The Buywood team also pride themselves on providing clients with a true insight into the art and intricacies of craftsmanship through the pieces created for them. Beginning with the wood of your choice, they can design and custom make just about anything you can imagine in a purpose-built workshop including coffee and dining tables, bedroom furniture, beds, sideboards, display cabinets, bar stools, outdoor furniture and more.
Whatever your Buywood piece may be, it will demonstrate a painstaking attention to detail and pride that is lost in much of today’s throw-away, mass-produced furniture. Buywood pieces are sanded by hand to accentuate the beauty of the timber’s natural grain and the use of dovetail joins on their pieces make even the parts you don’t see a work of art. Each piece is destined to become a precious family heirloom.
“When you make a table that seats 12 to 14 people, well, that’s pretty special. Those are the kinds of jobs I love doing. Big, impressive pieces that bring a family or group of friends together.”
