We are now exhibiting and selling work by ACT Wood Worker Robin Cromer.

Robin's interest in woodcraft began in his teens, first making wooden skis with his father, both for personal use and for sale in local Canberra sport stores. He went on to have a successful career in forestry research, initially with private enterprise and later with CSIRO. During the 1980s he was involved in establishing the ACT Woodcraft Guild. After retirement, Robin found time to re-join the Guild (2005), becoming Vice President and President for two years (2009-10). And in 2013 was made a life-member of the Guild.

Robin has developed a broad range of interests and skills in fine woodwork, including box making, wood-turning, marquetry and furniture. He is an award winning craftsman consistently winning prizes at the Woodcraft Guild annual Exhibition. He develops innovative, creative and unique designs by combining a variety of skills including turning, traditional joinery, marquetry, pewter inlay and pyrography. He also enjoys sharing skills and knowledge through encouraging and teaching other members of the Guild.
