Darren Oates

Darren has been working with timber for over ten years. His furniture is unique usually having some laminated form incorporated into the design a process which he engages in from the drawing board to final finishing thus allowing for individual works. Darren’s work reflects traditional woodworking methods of dovetail and mortice and tenon joinery that gives his work strength and integrity. His extensive use of Australian native timbers allows him to explore the unique qualities found in Eucalyptus and other native species.

The creation of smaller scale pieces in the form of jewellery and document boxes allows him to incorporate exotic local and imported species into his designs. Darren concentrates his efforts on speculative furniture and takes on a limited number of commissions throughout the year.
