Brian Berger designs and makes his furniture
from a small rural property in the beautiful hinterlands
of the Gold Coast, in a well equipped workshop using
fine furniture making techniques with a combination
of hand and machine tools.
His work includes limited edition furniture, commissioned
items including residential and commercial projects.
Formally trained in Carpentry and Joinery,
Brian’s love for timber soon turned to woodturning,
furniture restoration and over the last 17 years fine
furniture construction and design.
To design a fine piece of hand made furniture
takes time and patience. From the initial consultation,
sketching, to three dimensional cad drawings and in
some cases one-tenth scale models. Hand selected timbers
for grain direction showing best features. To watch

The use of traditional joinery methods,
mortise and tenon joinery fitting together like a piece
of a jigsaw. The feel of hand rubbed bench made furniture
all adds to the joy of being allowed to use this medium
for one’s craft.
Understanding how timber performs the
maker becomes the “Artisan” of designing
and making of hand crafted designer furniture, this
life is then passed on to the owner. A unique piece
of bench made solid timber furniture that will give
you much pleasure for years to come.
Brian Berger is passionate and proud of his work grateful
to be able to pass this experience on through his Designer
