About Christopher:

Christopher's passion in his trade has been a lifetime in the making.  From his younger years, he completed his apprenticeship in restoration with his family's Antique shop in Albury.  His appreciation for how pieces were constructed to how they lasted generations and then more so, the stories that surrounded that piece of furniture truly fascinated him.

Christopher Scott Furniture may no longer do restorations, but that core value is very much still alive.  He is incredibly passionate about building furniture that will be passed onto generations, have pride of place in homes and is something that cannot be purchased off the shelf.

He is very much a one man show, while his two younger daughters sometimes sweep the workshop floor or enable his veneer purchases, the product you have seen jump from a sketch on an email then onto your dining room floor, was very much built by his two hands.

We lovingly call Christopher, our Mr Willy Wonka. There are always designs cooking, brainstorms exploding and ideas hastily scribbled onto offcuts of timber. I am sure if there was a table made out of gobstoppers, he would have thought it.  And it would probably have a secret drawer in it! That is what our business is about.  Creating an experience. From a conversation in the workshop, to the delivery in your home, we want your new piece to be passed on to generations and become a part of your family story.

With over 20 years of experience, he has timber running through his veins. His love of Wadkin machinery, rare timbers, hand tools, veneers and tinkering with designs runs deep. The Lost Trades fair is such an incredible avenue to share his skills and on the day you'll be able to see some of his pieces, while watching demonstrations. We can't wait to show you, what happens in our world.  That quality Australian made furniture, is still very much available.

See you in Kyneton!

Lauren, Christopher and our apprentices Emily (8) and Sophie (3)

The Melbourne Home Show - 2017

The Melbourne Home Show was held over four huge days at the MCEC.

Christopher was proud to be involved with the collaboration between Hydrowood and Whelan The Warehouse, creating an award winning stand for 2017.

This handcrafted Whiskey Cabinet has been designed and constructed by Christopher, utilising Huon Pine salvaged by Hydrowood from Lake Pieman.

Huon Pine trees are some of the oldest and rarest in the world, and grow exclusively in Tasmania.  Taking around 500 years to mature, it is incredible to note that this timber started growing before Australia had been discovered and before the world's oldest Whiskey distillery - Old Bushmills  had been established in 1608.

No detail has been left out, with the interior fitted with Tasmanian Kangaroo leather, smoked mirrors, a touch open door and the striking Huon Birdseye veneer.

This Whiskey cabinet is available for purchase, or Christopher can customise one to suit your needs.

The Blackwood Credenza, with Hydrowood's fiddleback Blackwood, features touch open door/drawers and completed with Christopher's signature legs.  This piece is currently for sale in our Gippsland showroom.

Christopher also featured a Hydrowood celery top, bar table.

Thank you to Hydrowood  and Whelan's for the opportunity to showcase our proudly handcrafted Australian made furniture.

Please do not hesitate in contacting us, to bring your next dream piece to life.

The Vault - Whiskey Cabinet

The Vault, a premium Whiskey cabinet designed and made by Christopher Scott in his Gippsland workshop.

This piece is proudly on display for a limited time at the Design Tasmania - Lost & Found exhibition.
