Andrew is an excellent communicator and an amazing creator. Couldn't be happier with the table he made for us.
Gaming Table ~ November 2020
Andrew worked on downsizing a huge table so the proportions were retained & he was able to correct the finish so it was back to the original finish which was still evident on the underside of the table - no one else had been able to do this. Delightful guy to work with.

Low Shelving Unit ~ November 2018
Andrew was a delight to work with. We have a beautiful bed to match our 1880’s bed head. Not only that but we were welcomed and included in the decision-making process for the design. I would highly recommend him.

Convertible Chair ~ August 2018
When you’re watching Million dollar listings LA and for a moment your attention turns from the architecture. You’re eyes beam onto the magnificent wooden furniture - a piece so seamless you're taken into it's illusion of being one organ when really it’s planks of wood meshed so well together. And you think to yourself there’s no way I’ll ever afford that design. Solid wood is a luxury! Until one day your partner pushes you to find an affordable alternative - or else! Cue Handkrafted and Andrew Alstin! And Thank God for that! Andrew is Australian larrikin nostalgia - a true artisan who gave my husband and I the gift of solid American oak book shelf and table. They were extremely heavy pieces, luxuriously crafted and by God does it show! Even though his niche is Victorian he truly understands wood - he got my brief of minimal Scandinavian. He communicated effectively, explaining in detail the procedure he was to take being open and patient to all my questions and concerns and sent photos of the transformation of the oak to my dedicated furniture. I now have pieces of furniture that will create experiences and memories and become of personal significance and identity to my home. A design and solid product that will truly stand the test of time! My advise to my fellow Aussies; if you really love wood and you want something affordable, take Andrew’s business because you can never go wrong when a craftsmen truly cares!
Book Case & Table ~ May 2018
Andrew completed the commissioned piece with an exceptional level of craftsmanship. A keen eye on getting the small details correct and was always happy to adjust the design to accommodate my ideas into the final piece that I had envisioned . I couldn't be more happy with the result. Thanks Andrew.
Display Frame ~ December 2017
I had the best experience ever! l had an idea of what l wanted, but it was difficult to explain. I had several conversations with Andrew and he took the time to listen, and to use his knowledge and experience to create exactly what l wanted!! He was fun to talk to as well! I could tell he loved what he did and l knew my project was in good hands!
