About The Owner

Hi! I'm Alexander Hennings 

I began my career as a freelance Filmmaker and Video Editor.

During the 2021 lockdown, faced with no work, I decided to try something new. I was inspired by the furniture my father had crafted in his secondary school woodworking classes which have lasted for three decades. True family heirlooms. I decided that I wanted him to teach me what he knew about working with his hands.

During this time, I found my passion for working with my hands. I began with building a container home workshop in my back garden and slowly collected second hand tools and machines; restoring them and learning new skills.

We have expanded to four full time employees and a much larger workshop based in Retreat, Cape Town as well as a showroom within a short walk from our workshop.
