Douglas Keith, Douglas Keith (Studio Furniture 2018)

My name is Douglas Keith and I'm a young 23 year old fine furniture maker based in Canberra. I work for Myles Gostelow who also trained and mentored me during my apprenticeship. We specialise in one off custom pieces of handcrafted fine furniture. The ability to create something unique and of very high quality from nothing less than a few hand selected boards drives my passion for the craft. Throughout my apprenticeship I was awarded with the following: 2015 FIAA Regional Apprentice of The Year, 2015 National John Tiddy Apprentice Of The Year, 2017 FIAA Apprentice Of The Year, 2017 Most Outstanding Achievement Award Of The Year and 3rd in the National Worldskills Cabinet Making Competition. Under Myles’s close mentoring and leadership, I will continue to develop and hone my skills to hopefully owning and running a successful fine furniture business.
