Wood work Workshop

Max has always had a passion for woodwork, and at a young age was building furniture out of whatever timber he could source around his father’s farm. He started his carpentry and joinery apprenticeship at the age of 16 at the Geraldton Building Company and was fortunate enough to be taught by some “old school” tradesmen. After some travel experiences he spent a year with his cousin, Gary Bennett who had just started up Jah Roc furniture. In 1991 Max Royce Greenough Woodworks commenced with the building of a rammed earth workshop. 

For the next 25 years Max made solid recycled timber furniture for clients around Australia and guided 4 apprentices through their trade.

Max continues to make furniture on special commission and teaches woodwork on a part-time basis. 

His favourite wood is jam wood… see attached image.
