David Hall, David Hall, Vic (Studio Furniture 2018)

After 40 years working as an engineer, with woodwork as a hobby to be pursued when time permitted, retirement to north-east Victoria has enabled David to engage more actively in his love of woodworking. Over the years his skills and aesthetics have been refined through practice and exposure to other woodworkers. He is a long term member and past president of the Victorian Woodworkers Association. Whilst appreciating the finest of hand tools, David is a pragmatic user of power tools where they can be controlled and manipulated by the user for the best outcome. Most of David’s output is in a contemporary style and always of his own design. He has a preference for Australian timbers wherever possible and has undertaken work utilizing recycled timbers. He has participated in a number of VWA exhibitions and received second prize in the 2016 Create from a Crate competition. See www.davidhallwoodworking.net
