Robert O ConnorRobert O Connor


Welcome to the award winning Robert O’Connor Woodworking featured on RTE Nationwide, two times winner of the RDS National Craft Competition.  Robert founded his Woodworking Shop to showcase his innovative products and gifts, his work can be purchased in-store or delivered to your door through his e-commerce website. We place sustainability at the heart of how we work and what we make and sell.

Robert is the key designer and maker and his wife Mary is also involved with the digital marketing and as the social media marketing manager, it is very much a family run business.

Robert started his career with timber by obtaining his apprenticeship in his late teens and continued that career by becoming an international renowned name in luxury design and craftsmanship. He completed many bespoke kitchens and rooms for clients around Ireland and worldwide.

In 2010 Robert had a pivot in his career and decided to teach what he had learned over the years by providing Woodturning Courses and Woodworking courses which are project based. He also opened his Gift Shop where we can guarantee to save you time, effort and money when buying a gift by providing one off, handcrafted, unique gifts which can be personalised with your special message and delivered to your door.



All our deliveries is done by FastWay Couriers which is a very reliable Wexford based courier company. Once a parcel is collected from us it is delivered in Ireland within 24 hours.
