About


Situated in the small dairy town of Longwarry, craftsman Christopher Scott Duncombe utilises over 17 years of experience to build furniture to be used everyday and enjoyed for life.

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 NSW.  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's passion continues from his Longwarry workshop, where he is building on a dream that was created as a young apprentice.  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.

Whiskey Cabinets

With his love of the wild grained timbers, teamed with all the facets of Whiskey, it was only time that Christopher combined his two passions together.




"The Vault" 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 starting growing before Australia had been discovered and before the world's oldest Whiskey distillery Old Bushmills had been established in 1608.
