Col Hosie, box maker and teacher 01.08.14

Col has a background in teaching industrial arts, wood turning and small joinery design and construction. Since we purchased Gifkins Dovetail in 2011, manufacturing has kept him busy.

In his ‘spare’ time he concentrates on mastering fine box making. His boxes are available through our website and for sale in a number of galleries throughout Australia.

Col demonstrates box making for enthusiasts at trade shows and special events, and teaches box making to students in his workshop. He also conducts in-servicing for schools and wood groups. Col’s aim is to keep box making simple and enjoyable for everyone.

Call us about a box making class in our workshop, or for an in-service for your organisation.
