About Lone Dog Workshop

I started woodworking to take myself away from my day job in front of a computer, working with my hands is so satisfying and learning new skills and techniques is so much fun!

I was lucky enough after working out of many small spaces to build my dream workshop in the NSW Southern Highlands - lots of family support from my beautiful wife and two boys, encouraging me along!

The wonderful part of this journey is watching others enjoy my creations which is why I decided to open this store. If there is an idea you would like realised or have a custom piece you would like to discuss please reach out. Nothing is too hard when you take it one step at a time...

Wooden watch box with 3D crocodile carved in the lid

A part CNC project for a great mate's Christmas Present - a watch box with a 3D CNC carved swimming crocodile on the lid. The box was made from Tallowwood, box joint construction with dividers, flocked in black and Grey Gum watch holders for his collection.

Wooden table for a mixer with happy customer standing alongside

A unique problem for this customer, not tall enough to see in the bowl of this huge mixer, she asked me to create a fit for purpose table to allow her to wheel it in and out of her pantry and make it properly usable without a ladder. Some beautiful Australian Hardwoods used in this build

Being featured in the Dec 2023 Highlife Magazine was a real treat! The editor had seen the reindeer and thought it would work for the Christmas edition and it certainly gave us some exposure! They were great to work with and of course I gave them some reindeer for the office 

We were lucky enough to take out a First and two Second Prizes at the 2023 Moss Vale Show! Great comments from judges and the public. There were many great local artists on display so very proud to be recognised.

A special project for a new customer - a bread cutting board with a crumb tray to keep your kitchen clean - all the rage in Europe, she loved it and it was a great challenge for me. Red Mahogany and Tallowwood with a brass knob.

Custom shelving unit - Tallowwood and steelCustom shelving unit - the Tallowwood has amazing grain figuring!

This sideboard was rescued from the hard rubbish, needed a new top - reclaimed oak with Red Gum accents, border profile giving it added depth and appearance of thickness and looks beautiful in the customers hall / entryway.
