About ManualArtsDEpt

On Etsy since 2014

Our philosophy is to create well-resolved, finely crafted timber homewares that are original in design, evoking an emotional connection.

Hello! We are independent Australian designer / maker duo, David Bunic and Carol Jackson, co-owners of the brand Manual Arts DEpt.

Our philosophy is to create well-resolved, finely crafted timber wares and unique gift ideas that are original in design and made to endure.

We truly believe that through the authenticity of our products, our attention to detail and stellar service, the act of gift giving and receiving is a more poignant and lasting experience for our clients and their recipients.

All items are designed and made to order, by us, in our studio based in Tenterfield, in regional northern New South Wales, Australia. We source all of our hardwood timber locally, directly from independent suppliers and family-run sawmills – providing us with stunning, sustainably sourced materials with which to craft our designs.

Our location on the Great Dividing Range brings us immense pleasure and inspiration and we endeavour to live a sustainable lifestyle, always respectful of the environment.

Within our Etsy shop you’ll discover thoughtfully designed, contemporary keepsakes and authentic lifestyle products, which celebrate the true character of timber. In bringing our creations to life we utilise a combination of technology-driven and traditional woodworking techniques.

It is thrilling for us to witness the transformation of every single item from start to painstaking finish, whereby we hand sculpt each piece - to reach the organic, tactile and artisan result of which we are so proud.

Please enjoy browsing our selected range of product designs - perfect for wedding, anniversary or housewarming gifts - many of which can be personalised – and all of which arrive traditionally gift-wrapped.

Perhaps you’ll unearth something to treasure for yourself or someone you love.
