Your design style in one word: Peaceful.

Favourite material: Wood from trees that meant something to me.

When your best ideas come to you: When lost in unrelated thoughts.

Douglas Mackay crafts fine wood furniture and objects using traditional tools and techniques. He looks to the grain pattern of the wood - the story of how the tree grew in nature - to create balance in his work. He is most passionate about the role wood and woodworking play in our social and environmental wellbeing.
