1930’s Travel Port Seat


We transformed this old 1930’s travel port into a safe and comfy seat which we then placed a modern twist with its legs made of Tasmanian oak, polished to perfection and topping it off with the fun psychedelic patterned fabric we used that gives you a taste of the 50’s/60’s which has recently made a come back in all the latest trends.

An Old Woody Treasure

Our clients had been holding on to the old log for 20 years, always thinking that they ‘would do something with it one day’.

We delivered a product made by our best craftsman, a coffee/occasional table designed & constructed out of an old log cutting, and there was a quiet moment when tears began to flow. Tears of joy!

Beautiful Doors

We have these beautiful old doors that currently reside in a $5M home on the river in Brisbane. The home was recently sold and is being lovingly restored by a new owner.

Beautiful-Doors RF

These doors however have a much richer history: They were originally rescued from a demolition in the city of Brisbane where an old bank was being torn down. The timber is of original Queensland silky oak 50 mm thick and 3 meters tall, and each pane of glass had been hand cut and beveled… just priceless!

We are half way through the restoration… stay tuned!


Austrian Bentwood Chairs

Every piece of these Austrian Bentwood chairs was dismantled and lovingly sanded back to natural timber.

Instead of original cane insert seats, the client opted for drop in plywood seats. With their preserved character and quality, we know she will be delighted with the end product.

Granite Coffee Table

What do you do with the left over granite or stone when building a new kitchen bench top?

Why not make a matching coffee table?? Beautifully framed in teak, this coffee or occasional table is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The stone was left over from a kitchen project and the client could not bear to just throw it away.
