About

Geoff Willing went into business making handcrafted, custom made furniture over thirty years ago. He has been enthralled by the beauty and the possibilities that the grain of each piece of timber presents and he has continued making furniture, either full time or part time, over the period between then and now.
Soon after going into business Geoff won awards for his woodcraft at a local level in north-east Victoria.
It was, however, in 1988 that Geoff won a major award at Beaver Galleries, Canberra, winning the Annual Award Exhibition titled, "The Finishing Touch". His winning exhibit was an Australian red cedar blanket chest with a coopered lid.
Later that year Geoff designed and made three pieces of furniture for the group exhibition titled, "Exhibition Oregon", which was held at the Royal Exhibition Buildings, Melbourne. This exhibition utilised the former oregon bearers of the Great Hall of the Royal Exhibition Buildings. The bearers were transformed into a range of functional and decorative objects.

In 1989 Geoff designed and produced two pieces of furniture for the Australian Furniture Design Awards, held at the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne.
To Geoff, well proportioned design that highlights the beauty of the wood is what it is all about, whether it be a piece of functional furniture or a woodcraft item.
The main timber used is blackwood. Red gum, alpine ash, walnut, huon pine and hoop pine are examples of other timbers used.
Geoff can produce plans and quotes for custom made furniture. Traditional joinery methods are complemented with modern techniques and processes.
He makes a wide range of furniture items and specialises in coffee tables, side tables and production runs of small boxes and containers.
Items are polished to produce a smooth finish that highlights the beauty of the grain of the wood.
Geoff's workshop is based at Eurobin, in North East Victoria, and visitation is by appointment.
As well as making furniture, Nuts About Wood also produces quality walnuts and chestnuts. These are available in autumn and sometimes in winter if stocks last.
