Drew Badcock

Drew Badcock is a cabinet-maker and also a farmer growing poppies and grain crops on the red soils of Tasmania’s north coast at Exton.

Interested in woodwork from an early age making model planes and boats he gained experience with timber after leaving school by building a shearing shed and over a dozen other farm buildings and through restoring furniture for local clients. He is self taught mainly from books and observation and is developing his own style in contemporary furniture – strong construction for a long life is a priority for him. He originally started making boxes to use up the small scraps of attractive wood - using off-cuts and small pieces of highly figured timber that were too attractive to discard.

He has now made many hundreds continually refining the shape and more recently has to buy in timber especially to make them.
