“Douzo meshiagare” Oak poles

Well we’re still going through white oak heaven (more on that soon!) and now there are American oak poles rolling out of every spare bit of room we have left at the workshop. ( Time to start thinking about expanding 😉 ).

There had to be more than 4 cubic meters of raw American oak delivered for us to build the 50 (50- imagine that!) large round oak poles required for a new Japanese restaurant here in Brisbane. Hence this blurb’s title (Douzo Meshiagare) which is Japanese for “Enjoy your meal”.

Each pole will finish up at 3.1 meters high and 100 mm in diameter so we’re looking forward to seeing the completed job.
