Latest Update – November 27, 2014
The Seventh Day Adventist church project is nearing completion. We have had a very interesting ride with this job. It has been hard work using a mix of local and offshore manufacture, whilst maintaining quality (bringing the offshore pieces up to our standard after their arrival prior to delivery) and ensuring client satisfaction remains at 100%.
All pieces are coming together nicely and the fact that our guys have had to rectify some defects and repair some transit damage to the offshore pieces just further highlights how capable we are in the way we successfully blended the two sources.
Before we sign off on the project we will conduct final quality checks and then put our name to it.
Our craftsmen have seen another side to their own industry first hand and while the early stages of this project they were a little worried about how it would all come together, we feel that it has been an extremely positive learning experience that now has our master craftsmen thinking globally.
Update – September 22, 2014
The next phase is to complete assembly and start sealing & polishing. The pulpit is completed and awaiting its final coat of 2 pack polish.
The 6 priest’s chairs have been built with some final sanding and polishing yet to be completed.
As of September 17, 2014
Here’s the altar table completed. The SDA logo has been carved into the top of the table, then filled with a 2 pack clear resin (it’s about 3 to 5 mm deep) to give it that 3 dimensional look and then 2 pack clear isolac topcoat for long lasting durability. The solid oak table is designed to match the pulpit and the altar chairs.

It was announced today that Renowned Furniture won the bid to design and build all of the furniture for a southeast Queensland church.
Our team were over the moon and had worked very hard to provide the right solution for the church within budget and in an acceptable timeframe to coincide with the churches plans. All of the furniture will be made using White Oak or American oak. “We like to think we’re in “white oak heaven” at present “
Renowned have also provided additional features such as the Adventist logo (comprising of an open bible with a cross and the 2 flames or angles arising pictured below) to be carved into all the furniture for that special touch. We’ll keep updates on the construction coming if anyone’s interested.
