Daisy’s dual worship tables

Updated: June 7, 2017

Daisy’s mum and dad’s altars are taking shape. Ready for polishing.

May 26, 2017

Daisy came with her mum and dad to scope out some Chinese worship tables (altars).

There are some very strict rules to follow when building these pieces as dictated by our good client. For example, each dimensional measurement must have an “8” in it. Possibly the most common lucky number? 8 is considered lucky because its pronunciation is similar to that of the word ‘发’ (fa in) ‘发财’ (‘to make a fortune’).

A long journey

Greg came to Renowned because he’d been watching our website and news posts for a few years and decided that we were the right company to help him replicate his late grandmother’s display cabinet.

After she passed, the vultures moved in and cleaned out the house before Greg could get there to salvage the cabinet that his grandfather had made in 1925. He did manage to salvage some of the Royal Dalton china and has been adding to it ever since.

Using memory and with our craftsman’s assistance, we custom made a replica in silky oak with flocked drawers for the silverware.

Hinted, mild tannins, strong finish, fruity undertones with a brilliant oak flavour and colour. This custom-made oak table will be great now and should cellar easily for 100 years!

Walter’s going Aussie

Walter has a new house and the window moulds have been replaced with something reminiscent of the Taj Mahal. He wants to “get back to Queensland”!

Renowned moulds

We built an amazing bed for Walter some months ago and now we’re renovating his home! The things we do.


A perfect replica of a solid silky oak coffee table

This solid silky oak coffee table was made for a client that already had one like it. We would have liked to polish it in a little more natural tone, but it was to match something they already had and they were happy!

Wall mounted hall mirror sold!

This wall-mounted hall mirror is solid cedar, handmade and designed by our guys based on some priceless off cuts of some of the finest old growth Qld red cedar you will ever see that’s not already been used to make something at least once before! Sold after hanging in the office for two weeks.

Silky oak match!

This bedside table was restored and we were asked to make a matching silky oak turned bedside lamp! Sarah, already had the lamp shade rescued from an old lamp of her mother’s. So we turned up a lamp stand made from the old silky stock we’ve been hoarding for more than 40 years! Perfect match.
