David Mac Laren OAM

Specialising in custom designs and collaborations

I started my career as a designer maker in 1973. I opened the Bungendore Wood Works Gallery in 1983. I established a purpose-built Gallery in 1993. During these years I have either worked in share workshops or from my own workshop employing makers.

My workshop was destroyed by fire in 1998. For the next five years I collaborated with other makers to make highly designed and sometimes intricate work. I re-built a workshop as a space for solitary exploration of work while still collaborating with other makers.

As a gallery owner I have cultivated good working relationships with many fine furniture makers and sculptors in Australia since 1983.

My Bungendore Wood Works Gallery offers clients a very wide range of my expertise so that we can find the best makers to fulfil client projects.
