Craig Howard and Son are one of Tasmania’s finest timber furniture craftsmen. Working with the world renowned Tasmanian special species timbers including Huon Pine, Kingbilly Pine, Celery-top Pine, Blackwood, Blackheart Sassafras, Myrtle and selected imported timbers such as cedar and mahogany.
Every piece of furniture is meticulously handcrafted. We use a combination of traditional methods such as hand dovetailing and carving, while using ultra-modern machinery to precision machine, dress and dry our timbers.
We source our timber through the Tasmanian Fine Timbers chain of custody. We respect the need to sustainably harvest. We want our industry to be still here in the next century and centuries to come. We ourselves proudly mill, air- and kiln-dry all of the special species timber we use.
In finishing our timbers we use only natural products as we believe the timber is, in a sense, still alive, still breathing; we believe it is essential to treat fine timber with respect!.
