About Us

Woodcarving, Woodturning & Cabinetmaking

The Woodcarvers Haven started as a specialist woodcarving, woodturning & cabinetmaking school, but now also incorporates our Cellar Door.

We still teach woodcarving of period furniture, sculptures and rocking horse making. Rocking horses come in small, medium and large, also a bow rocker horse. We make them completely finished and individually numbered for those wanting a heirloom horse of high quality.

We do a range of extra carved horses for the more discerning buyer. Rocking horses come in painted finish or natural timber polished. We use Jelutong, Mahogany, Huon Pine, Walnut and many other timbers. Our extra carved horses that are rearing up are unique to us and designed by Michael personally. You won’t find any other horse of this standard elswhere.

All the joints are hand planed and fitted together so that no wood filler is ever required on our horses. We personally select Huon Pine timber from Tasmania each year so that we have unique grain in each horse. Birdseye and white board grain polished is fantastic. 

We also make fine furniture from small items like bowls to dining room tables, chiffoniers, chairs and any item in wood. We do commission work and have made altars, lecterns, baptism fonts and even done a sculpture of Jesus to go on the cross. See our Gallery page for more of our works
