Vawdrey Qld project

The Vawdrey reception desk is complete!

Here are the boys at Vawdrey’s site for the desk installation.





What a great show piece for the many visitors as they arrive in Vawdrey’s flash new facility.

The fronts, curved section moulded out of several layers of bonded bending plywood and then overlaid with a New Guinea Rosewood timber veneer, The silver blades (made to look a little like the structural ribs that make up a semi-trailer frame are constructed from solid core mdf and 2 pack painted using automotive paint. There are stainless steel boss stand-offs supporting 10 mm thick custom toughened glass for the floating tops. The worktops are solid core veneer done in American oak.

More progress for the Vawdrey reception desk – with the spars, blades already built and undercoated. Watch this space for the finished product!

Progress is good for the Vawdrey reception project – New Guinea Rosewood front, American oak desktops and custom curved sides.






Update: April 20, 2016

We have all the materials here, including the finished timber for the outer front section, which came to us via special courier from the Gold Coast. We have made the templates for the silver spars that go down the front and these were CNC machined during Easter. We have also prepared the templates for the glass tops.

We were asked to “Make one like this, please.” The Vawdrey group make trailers for big road haulage trucks and they’re building a flash new Queensland office. We’ve been proudly charged with providing the best piece in the new reception – the first thing people see when they walk in (apart from the lovely receptionist!)


So here’s where we are with that project so far… WTS
