Designed and Built in Queensland Australia by an artisan furniture maker and fly fisherman. Each Saratoga workstation is meticulously hand crafted from selected Australian hardwoods with Blue Gum our signature timber. And as with fly tying there is a constant process of refinement to produce an heirloom to be proud of. Only the best all-natural products are used. Dovetail joints, box joints, dowels and biscuits are used to ensure added strength and longevity. Very few screws if any are used on the majority of or work pieces with two hand applied coats of a mixture of Tongue oil and turpentine applied to penetrate deeply into the timber.
“A well organised bench will save you time, and when you’re finished tying your favourite fly, many of our benches can be simply picked up and stored in a safe place.”
Handmade from Australian Hardwoods in Southeast Queensland, with Baize lined draws and removable draw sections.
From the creator and master craftsman Bill Schneider
“To be proficient in one’s craft takes a lifetime of dedication.
Woodwork and fishing run in my family and have been passed down from generation to generation. My Grandfather an accomplished clock builder, my father a woodwork teacher and I have enjoyed a career in the furniture industry in one form or the other over the past 31 years.”
