As someone who has been tinkering, shaping and creating with timber since he was young, no doubt some of Stephen Halpin’s best work is seen in his beautiful and unique collection of wooden boards. Based in Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast, Stephen likes to use recycled wood or sustainable plantation-grown timber wherever possible, as he strongly believes we all have to look after the environment however we can.
