About
Kim 'Chunky' Gent is a Goldfields artist, who crafts discarded timber into stunning, unique furniture, homewares and the infamous #NullarborBeads. Chunky has been crafting one - off timber pieces in the Goldfields since 2001, and can tell you exactly where every piece comes from. ​ He produces close to zero waste, turning the smallest off cuts into tumbled and handcrafted Nullarbor Beads. ​ All crafted items are made from the most beautiful gnarled, dense timbers; his major work taking years to make from 'tree to table.' ​ You will find the studio showroom just near the Superpit Lookout, where you can experience this region and participate in a hands on workshop with the artist. ​ Experience the Goldfields.

Unless you like wood, dirt, dust and grime don't bother. We went on the tram to visit this place and it was not real fascinating at all. Wouldn't even bother with the tram ride, overpriced for what we saw.

We enjoyed visiting Chunky's. His products are quite unique and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Well worth a visit.

The quality of the workmanship is amazing. Chunky and his offsider are very friendly and helpful.
They took the time to show me how to make my own Nully Buddy (thanks guys I love my Cassie Nully Buddy). The pay immense attention to helping the little ones feel good making their own Nully Buddy leaving the grown ups to browse knowing their little treasures are happily playing.
I brought a number of pieces and everyone loves them.
Definitely recommend you drop in and see for your self.
Love this place.

We didn't get to meet Chunky - but Chunky's wife was lovely! Very happy to purchase a beautiful cheese board that is absolutely unique - beautiful workmanship & such a beautiful piece of timber. This will always remind us of our trip.

Owner, Chunky finds the artistic features of every piece of wood he finds. His creations are one offs and well priced. My favourite items were the marvellous Nullarbor Beads which are now sold all over the world

The owner is dedicated to his craft and it shows in his eagerness to show and talk about his work. He has activities for children with making beads etc. beautiful work set amongst his factory so you can see the timber in its raw state and then what it becomes. The owner is a real Aussie who assists charity with his earnings. We went there on a Saturday afternoon at 3 pm.

I am sorry to hear this experience, we are a small business operation. We try to remain open as much as we can. Sometimes we need to pop out for personal or business matters. We are always just a phone call away. If the gates aren't open, please call and we can let you in. You can also book ahead on our website to lock in a studio visit or workshop with the owner or showroom manager. We are sorry that we couldn't be there for you this time.
