Tim found his passion for crafting furniture from timber from his grandfather at a young age. He pursued an apprenticeship after High school with a small joinery shop where he learnt his skills from the owner himself. Once completing his apprenticeship in early 2000 he moved to Pt lincoln to work for a larger cabinet making company, but mainly to feed his surfing bug. It was during this time that he took the opportunity to hone his skills. It was also during this time he took his 1st overseas trip to Sumatra, surfing through the Mentawai Islands. Once he arrived back home he moved back to Adelaide and pursued Shopfitting where he quickly became a site supervisor. His passion for travel had been ignited and in 2006 he left Australia on a round the world trip lasting 2 and half years.

Travelling/Surfing/Working through countries such as Sth America, Nth America, Europe, Sth East Asia and the Middle East he realised that once back in Australia it would be time to achieve his next goal of starting his own business. A dream which he had set from back in his apprenticeship. Working as a joiner in other countries gave him a different insight into different ways to achieve things and advancing his skills.

Coast to Coast Cabinets was born in 2015. Since then we have gone forwards in leaps and bounds. We have an AMAZING team that Tim is proud to continue to grow and thrive with.
We continue to evolve and always improve in all areas. Coast to Coast Cabinets is now a small family business which places high values on relationships. Tims vision is taking shape!
