What’s new at the Bungendore Woodworks

This time last year we were closed during the lockdown, and using our time
with the doors closed to rebuild our website and Point of Sales system.

warmth before the winter cold well and truly sets in. There’s nothing like

A New Roxie…

This one is an edition of 20 recently released.
At 60 cm tall (plus the base) she is spectacular.
To limit the weight, I have made it hollow and filled it with polyurethane expanding foam for added strenght.
