We’ve been commissioned to undertake commercial projects in hospitality, retail and corporate industries.
Here are a few of our projects using recycled Victorian timbers.
We built bars, tables, bench seating, outdoor tables, entrance doors, sofas, bathroom vanities and custom beer taps for ambient Richmond craft beer bar and restaurant Kekou.
The custom made bars were built from railway sleepers salvaged from the Mornington Peninsula.
Tables tops were constructed from recycled mixed hardwoods to compliment the ambience of the historic building.
Our Neptune sofas have been used to create a cosy upstairs area, with matching upholstery used on the downstairs bench seat to create unity.
Koori Court Bar Tables- 2020
We have had the pleasure of hand making bar tables for Koori courts in various locations around the state.
Each table has been constructed using locally salvaged, recycled timbers including Messmate and Red and Yellow Stringy barks.
Measuring four metres long many of the bar tables feature artwork centrepieces by local Indigenous artists.
The oval shaped bar table allows a culturally responsive court experience where the magistrate, a Koori court officer, prosecutor, lawyers, family and accused sit in a circular fashion (a yarning circle) and take part in a sentencing conversation. Aboriginal elders or respected persons are present and offer cultural advice.
The courtrooms where these tables sit also have a traditional smoking ceremony prior to their initial use.
We are honoured to contribute to this project by hand making these beautiful tables from native timbers and working the local artists to offer a tactile connection to the land in the Koori court setting.
Rustic Benches- GRILL'D
Custom built benches for Grill’d in Fairfield.
For this project we used 100 % recycled hardwoods, with a dark stain for a rustic finish.
We were lucky to be asked by Toorallie, manufacturers of fine merino knits, to make some furniture for their first flagship store in Clifton Hill. We were commissioned to create two large display stables, some stools, and a small display table. We used salvaged stringybark timber with medium to light feature, and the pieces look beautiful alongside the natural fabrics and clothing materials they use.
Reception Desks & Staff tables
A reception desk and staff break out tables and dining benches for ANZUK. A range of lighter feature grade recycled timbers were used for this project.
Custom made round cafe tables made for Mavis the Grocer in Abbotsford, Melbourne.
For this project we used mixed species, locally salvaged, 100% recycled hardwoods.
Bar table Koori court
We were proud and appreciative to have been given the opportunity to make a bar table for the Koori Court in Broadmeadows.
A Koori Court is a program that provides a culturally responsive court experience for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
The four-metre long table, which is called a ‘Bar Table’ in the Koori Court, was hand constructed from feature grade recycled Messmate.
A boomerang-shaped opening at the table’s centre allows for microphone leads and cables to be passed through.
Your Community Health
Reception area fit out for Your Community Health clinics in Melbourne’ inner north. Reclaimed timbers were used to create reception desks, decorative posts, and shelving to display collateral.
