About Us Marcus

Hencer Furniture is a locally owned family business.

We design and make quality handcrafted solid timber furniture west of Melbourne, in the historic city of Ballarat.

Hencer design was started by Marcus Allen, a talented, award winning Cabinet Maker.

Dedicated to his craft from day one, Marcus won back to back apprenticeship awards -topping his TAFE class two years in a row.

Working for small, hands on woodworking businesses in Victoria, he went onto to further his knowledge at a leading London furniture manufacturer – where he found his love for solid timber.

20 years of experience later, Marcus loves nothing more than to provide clients with old fashioned, personal service.

Clients can visit his shed, or Marcus can come to your house and sketch custom designs to make pieces that will last a lifetime.

Even if you have something to retrofit – Marcus can add drawers or extra storage to make things more functional and perfectly suited to your needs.

Offering advice of everything from height to colour choice and the right timbers, trust Marcus to deliver outstanding quality and finished to perfection.
