Les has been working with wood for more than 40 years. His early experiences were in Brisbane as an apprentice in the manufacture of modern lounge and dining suites. Upon his move to the south west of WA he commenced working with various builders, continuing to develop his skills working with timber.

As time progressed Les was inspired to apply a more creative approach to the design of furniture and craft wood items.  This was a significant move away from making and assembling the same designs in this industry.

Les is motivated to work with the natural contours and grain of the timber in creating pieces that incorporate soft flowing lines and depict certain themes in his work. His hand- crafted and unique designs are individually made utilising hand tools.
