John Dickie is a craftsman with years of knowledge working with wood. It all started with the decision 30 years ago to build a sailing boat. So there was a need to practise woodworking skills and the business Touch Wood Garden & Patio was born, working only with durable hardwoods and construction methods that needed to withstand outdoor elements (possibly the sea!). John specialises in hardwood outdoor benches, but he does enjoy a challenging wood project. Pictured on a Red River Gum spiral staircase made in 2018.
