Are your products handmade?

Yes, all our products are handmade, by us. We design, create, shape, sand, join and paint our own products with love! Once your order is placed, we begin to make your product. This ensures that, when necessary, we are able to incorporate specific requests from our customers. Please also refer to our wood disclaimer

What wood is used to make Fabian Woodworks products?

We generally use Radiata Pine or Hardwood timber (Tasmanian Oak etc.) that have been sourced from sustainable regrowth plantation forests and ensure our timber suppliers are PEFC Chain Of Custody Certified. 

What colours can I choose from?

We offer our Tasmanian Oak (Hardwood), Pine and Treated Pine products in a range of different finishes. Please refer to our Timber Colour Swatches page for more details.

How long does it take to make each product?
We require approximately seven business days to make our products, depending on the size and complexity. If you have a specific time frame, please do not hesitate to Contact Us and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

How do I look after my product?

Our philosophy at Fabian Woodworks is simple, our handmade wooden products are made to last. Over their lifetime, our products will need a little care and attention to ensure they last for many years to come. As our products are made from timber (Pine or Tasmanian Oak) which are natural products, it will respond to its environmental conditions, please refer to our wood disclaimer. Do not use cleaners or polishes as these may cause permanent damage to the finish. Regularly wipe the timber surfaces to remove dust and dirt. Do not leave liquid to sit on timber surfaces as it will penetrate and may cause staining. Wipe up spills immediately with a damp cloth.
