EXHIBITOR PROFILE - Brian Coetzee Artisan Boxmaker

Name: Brian Coetzee Artisan Boxmaker
Biography: The humble workshop in which my days are spent is a place where wood is given it's due respect and passionately handcrafted into decorative boxes that will hold any of your treasures. Or maybe you would like the box for the box itself? I am an artisan practicing my craft from a small one-man workshop just outside the small town of White River, South Africa. I have completed many furniture commissions but my cabinetmaking evolution, as it were, has now mutated into specializing in the building of wooden boxes. Woodworking seemed to have arrived from within... it just sort of evolved. At age 29, back in 1991, I bought a truckload of wood before I ever owned any woodworking tools. Having a full-time job enabled me to slowly, very slowly, gather, buy and collect machine tools to work this wood in my spare time. It took a few more years for me to discover the usefulness and accuracy of hand tools. I eventually resigned from my day job in 1996 and took up woodworking full-time and by 1998 had decided that box-making was my 'thing'. Now in my 50's I am fortunate enough to practise my box-making passion from a small workshop in the rural Heidelberg Valley near White River, only 40km from the famous Kruger National Park. Most of my 'stock' or 'spec' boxes do not have standard sizes. The size and figure of the raw material woods determines the final proportions and look of the boxes. This results in less wastage of this precious resource. All of the boxes are made from wood which is acquired from reputable sources. I do not encourage irresponsible tree harvesting in any way and will recycle wood whenever possible. I am always on the lookout for African woods, one plank at a time!
