Hello, I'm

David Searson

About David

I'm based in Sydney, Australia - just on the north side of the bridge. Taught by my father, and inspired by my grandfather's carpentry, I make hand crafted pieces of all sorts.

History

Family

My grandfather Gordon was a cabinet maker before he enlisted for WWI, and did roofing and framing during the depression. After 50 years, I can still smell the wood shavings in his shed.

My grandfather George also had a wonderful shed full of tools and mystery. I still use some of his old tools.

My father Bill built furniture, but really loved creating and selling custom pottery.

Handyman

My first part-time business was as a handyman. I drove around fixing things, building things, and doing odd jobs for people in my local area. I has a Morris Mini with a boot full of tools.

Architecture

Yeah, I have a degree in Architecture. So I understand design, structure, materials, and construction.

Design

I spent 15 years surveying and drawing houses. And running a graphic design business. For a bunch of years, I have been involved in software design.

Maker

I love to make things like my grandfathers, and my father, did. I'm reviving the skills, crafts, and love for hand-made items that they taught me from a very young age.
