Jim Homann

Over the nine seven years the task of turning the Gallery's Artistic Director David Mac Laren’s BWWG designs in the wood from the timbers burls that are favoured by wood turners for their grain structure has fallen to Jim Homann a self taught wood turner from Lilli Pilli near Batemans Bay on the South Coast.

Homann is a fourth generation carpenter by trade having worked with his father in Childers in Queensland and then moving to the South Coast of NSW area via Tasmania.

Mac Laren feels that Homann is one of the finest repetitive wood turners in the business a trait that means much for the consistency of the product that Bungendore Wood Works Gallery has became recognised for. The two have been working in unison and have developed a line of small products which includes as business card holders vases lamp bases clocks and candle holders.
