Traditionally, the knowledge and skill of a Craft is handed down from generation to generation. The generation coming of age is taught by the one who preceded it.
There was a generational leap when Denis Anderson learned Woodcarving and Cabinetry. The men who took the time to teach Denis were old enough to be his Grandfather. Men like Fred Barrie, one of Australia’s finest furniture makers and his head cabinetmaker for sixty years, Frank Stanton. These craftsmen passed on a heritage of Enthusiasm and Passion for making the Finest Furniture.
Denis went on to establish his own furniture making shop in Newcastle in 1986.
“My decision to make furniture the traditional way is a legacy from Fred Barrie and it is something that I love. I love the process of designing and creating for a customer and using excellent timbers to produce a piece that will stay in a family for generations.”
Denis and his small team of highly skilled employees create a diverse range of furniture in all styles. Denis treasures the modest, personal size of his business which ensures quality is kept to the highest standard. French polishing, upholstery and installation are all carried out by Anderson’s Cedar Furniture.
