Delicate creativity combined with master craftsmanship
Inspired by the natural beauty of Australian hardwoods, David Suters is a timber craftsman who works in harmony with nature, drawing inspiration from the distinctive timbers of his trade.
From strong commercial foundations over 16 years with Francis Furniture, a leading NSW furniture design and manufacturing business, David’s technical prowess has been refined and perfected over a successful career handcrafting domestic, commercial and corporate furniture sculpted from select Australian Hardwoods.
Now with 37 years extensive experience in creative furniture design, manufacturing, and mastery of high quality durable finishing and polishing techniques, David focuses on creating the ‘Timbercraftsman Designer’ range of artistic serviceable products, as well as delivering ‘made-to-order’ services, providing professional design advice, and handcrafting customised flexible solutions.
For commissioned made-to-order pieces, individual customers requirements are paramount. Unlike standardised off-the-floor mass-produced factory made or imported products, each piece handcrafted by David is created from inception to completion with customers needs foremost in his mind.
An authentic love of the natural beauty of solid timber and dedication to satisfying his clientele, combined with delicate creativity and master craftsmanship empowers David to create truly distinctive, durable, contemporary pieces nurtured from earthly beginnings into everlasting collectables.
Timeless design and enduring quality
The experienced hands of David are those of a master artisan as the character, warmth and colour is enhanced, coming to life in each piece. His creativity is his own, which has continued to evolve through artistic freedom, adored by his exclusive clientele, and a continuing passion for his specialist trade.
Sourcing and hand selecting special timbers for his own designs along with a steady stream of commissions is both a challenge and a passion. The thrill of the search and the quality of the find all contribute to his creative process. Salvaged timbers form some of his favourite pieces, with each piece having its own personality and feel.
Each piece created by David either as a commission or to add to the ‘Timbercraftsman Designer Collection’ is highly sought after by discerning clientele who appreciate traditional craftsmanship of handcrafted Australian products with distinctive timeless design and enduring quality for how they live today and beyond as valued keepsakes and corporate acquisitions for generations to come.
to last a lifetime…
After relocating both his family and ‘Timbercraftsman’ from the Mid North Coast of NSW to the Noosa Hinterland on the Sunshine Coast of South East Queensland in 2014, he and wife Cindy established the award winning ‘Artisans Gallery Eumundi’.
Continuing to offer valued clientele the same excellence in service and craftsmanship, David evolved the Gallery in 2020, combining two passions; arts and creative industries with his professional trade as a furniture designer and maker.
