Drew Badcock is a cabinet maker and farmer who grows poppies and grain crops on the red soils of Tasmania’s north coast at Exton. Interested in woodwork from an early age, making model planes and boats, he gained experience with timber after leaving school by building a shearing shed and over a dozen other farm buildings. He originally started making boxes to use up the small scraps of highly figured timber that were too attractive to discard. He has now made many hundreds of boxes, continually refining the shape and buying in speciality timbers especially to make them.
