I'm Anthony Kleine, a custom wood turner based in Melbourne's northern suburbs.
I've loved working with wood and building projects since I was a teenager and shortly after finishing school in 2000, I began cabinet making which I have been working in the industry since.
During a trip to Tasmania in 2012 I came across a lot of wood turned bowls and other objects which I became really attracted to and when I got back home to Melbourne I immediately bought myself a lathe and started teaching myself the basics of woodturning.
Over the next few years I got more and more involved with turning and decided to continue with it full time and started up AKWT, where I like to incorporate different materials such as Corian and Acrylic to produce fresh and unique pieces.
Feel free to email me via the contact page for wholesale enquiries, if you have any questions regarding my work or to discuss one off commission pieces if you have something special in mind.
Thanks heaps for visiting my store. Enjoy.
