Handkrafted Woodwork

Thursday July 03, 2014 Written by Chris

You’re after a new piece of furniture. A table, say, or a set of chairs. But your relationship won’t survive another Sunday trawling the floors of the local Scandinavian megastore. Besides, you’re after something a little more serious this time. Something to last. 

Enter Handkrafted. Like a Tinder for the furnitureless, the site hooks those in need of handmade stuff up with talented artisans champing at the bit to make it. Simply state what you’re after in a few words, sit back and wait for the prospects to pour in.

Each of the Australian-based artisans has an online profile, where you can safely browse their previous work and see whether you might like to take it to the next level. Handy.
