Obi Valley Woodworks
430 Hunsley Road Coolabine QLD 4574
A unique Timber Gallery specialising in one-off sculptured pieces carved from Australian Red Cedar by renowned Sunshine Coast timber artist, Jack Wilms.
Jack’s skill in working with timber evolved while experiencing the many wonders of our Australian outback and wildlife. A combination of creativity, hard work and a deep respect for the timber he loves most results in the beautiful sculptured one off pieces that he creates. His passion is creating wildlife and native scenes as well as one off furniture pieces and carved Red Cedar doors.
Jack chooses to work only with Australian Red Cedar because of its naturally occurring unique grain and the rich red colour of the timber. His skills are self taught and are constantly being perfected as the years go by. The beautiful timber sculptures evolve as Jack chooses the perfect piece of timber and starts to create. Whatever his latest creation might be he is able to bring out the natural rich colour and grain of the timber and work it into the story of each piece. He is versatile in his creations and each sculpture can be boasted as being a one off because of the uniqueness of each piece of timber.
Jack spends most of his time in his studio, located in a tranquil setting in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland at the property he shares with his partner, Monica. His artwork is not mass produced and he enjoys creating each piece to perfection, the furniture pieces and carved doors are mostly commissioned by the client to suit their personal taste.
