Col Hosie box maker and teacher, has a background in teaching industrial arts, wood turning and furniture design and construction. Since we purchased Gifkins Dovetail in 2011, manufacturing Gifkins products 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 teaching 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.
Gifkins Dovetail owns and manufactures the only Australian dovetail jig. The easiest jig to use! #gifkinsdovetail #dovetailjig #colhosieboxmaker #wood
