Auburn Woodturning began in Hawthorn in 1947. Known locally as 'the woodturners' it is believed to be Melbourne oldest surviving hand woodturning business.

Throughout this time we have been providing builders, furniture makers, antique restorers and heritage home enthusiasts with handmade traditional and custom wood products.

In its early days the business manufactured fashionable standard lamps popular in the 1950's and 1960's. During the 1970's it diversified making furniture components and restoration pieces for the growing antique market.

As interest grew in the life and times of early Australia Melbournian's developed a strong desire to recreate the past. The revival of old homes became the trend bringing with it a demand for homes from Colonial, Victorian, Edwardian and Federation architectural eras.

It was during this time that Auburn Woodturning entered the period home product market. Hand turning verandah posts and making period pieces used to restore homes to their former glory. Many of which can be seen on the old homes of Melbourne's inner suburbs.

Today we still offer standard range period home products and the same custom hand woodturning service of the past. Our methods, virtually unchanged in over sixty years still use the original lathes and hand chisels of those early days. So if you want something special, detailed or just a little different you will be pleased to have found this unique little business.


Auburn Woodturning is a small business specialising in custom or made to order woodturning and the supply of period home timber decor.

Experienced in heritage and antique reproduction we are able to turn replica pieces to detail and with an accuracy that makes it difficult to distinguish from the original. Our expertise ranges from large verandah posts for renovation of old homes to delicate knobs required for antiques restoration.

Home renovators and new home builders can choose from our standard range of period home products. This range offers 'off the shelf' decor products for restoration of early era homes from Colonial, Victorian, Federation and Edwardian periods.

Well suited to the budget conscious this collection provides an easy option original features do not need to be retained. For those that are looking for more authenticity our custom service can reproduce products to match existing features.
