Here at Texan Art Schools we love nothing more than supporting the talents and creative endeavors of our local Kiwi’s. Wood Chefs is a family business and the creative outlet for the clever and very meticulous Auckland woodworker Annan Song. “The team is comprised of me and my son Mattox. I have a million things I want to make and Mattox often helps me out with operating the scroll saw, sanding and finishing whilst Pizza (our cat) and my wife enjoy their weekend.” Annan is formally trained in architecture and has worked as a part-time graphics designer, creative beginnings. Over the course of his career he ended up in IT sales & marketing but never lost the urge to create. After years thinking about getting into woodworking he finally made the time investment and has not looked back. Woodworking has now become one of the favourite parts of his life. Mattox learns off his dad and sometimes gives him very clever ideas to achieve very difficult tasks such as lifting a120kg bandsaw! As a team they enjoy getting around complex design problems and realizing them in wood.
