Branches Timbercraft has been based at Lawson in The Blue Mountains NSW since the mid 1970s and is currently owned and run by Matthew Connelly. Matthew began as an employee of Branches Timbercraft in 2000 and has been its owner and director since 2004.

All members of the Branches Timbercraft team are educated in the advanced traditional skills of joinery conservation work. We are aware that many skills in relation to traditional practices are being lost and training in these methods is important. We will continue to employ competent and enthusiastic apprentices and create a workforce with traditional and historic understanding.
