Suurbraak Carpentry Co-op

For many years the Suurbraak Chair Bodgers have been carving out an existence as a co-operative worker-owned business. The furniture produced here is available at selected outlets country-wide. Each Suurbraak chair is individually handcrafted from selected Canary Pine – a rock hard wood that ages to a honey brown hue. The technique and tools used to bodge these chairs is unique to South Africa. Each piece is shaped by a drawknife on a shaving horse and the seat is woven by hand – making each chair truly unique.

The Suurbraak Carpentry group welcomes visitors who would like to see the production process. From rocking chairs to bar stools and footstools, these items are well priced and would make attractive additions to any home.
