This is the kind of shed we like. Bright, spacious and filled with recycled timber furniture, keen woodworkers and a ‘can do’ attitude.
Do you daydream of bespoke furniture made to your exact specifications? The dream is getting more and more accessible in Australia as talented makers return to rural areas and local manufacturing as a way of life.
Brendan Ryan worked in the cabinet making and furniture industry for 14 years before coming home to Bendigo and opening New Life Timber. Big-city experience shows in the professional showroom and factory setup, but his flexible, collaborative approach to business is right at home in gold country. When you commission a New Life Timber piece you join the story. You can visit the factory to choose timber and see the transformation of weathered boards to satin soft surfaces. You can book a home visit for a design chat and measurements (design appointments are free). Or you can send ideas via email and photos and trust in a carefully executed result.
New Life Timber specialises in tables, dining settings, coffee tables, desks, floating TV units, buffets, vanities, bed heads and side tables. If it’s something else, their attitude is ‘we can make anything’. The business has a strong focus on sustainability and uses only recycled timber and eco friendly oils and stains. If you want something made in Australia and built to last it’s worth dropping in to the showroom to look around. A bespoke solution may be easier and less expensive than you think.
When we look at how often megastore furniture needs replacing, handcrafted furniture that can be repaired or resurfaced for multiple generations is a practical alternative. Have a chat to New Life Timber. You’ll find contemporary shapes, classic reinventions and rustic fit outs are all possible.
