Timber Desks

Georgia recently contacted me needing a small timber desk for her sons room.

The measurements were specific as was the need to house his school study gear (Mum’s Priority) but more importantly his game console (Son’s Priority)

I did some sketches and we made the desk recently.

As you can see everything is set up perfectly to suit his requirements and room.

Lets just hope he does more study than gaming!

Thanks for the picture Nathaniel.

If you need a desk or a complete home office solution please get in touch I will be happy to help.

Timber Vanity Unit

I recently completed some timber vanity units for my clients here in Melbourne.

They came to me with their designs and measurements and we made the cabinets in Messmate to specifications.

They are specially finished in a 2 pack lacquer for added protection against water and steam.

Here are some snap shots of them on site plumbing done and stone tops fitted.

The look great and as you can see are perfectly fitted into the recesses and spaces designated in the home renovation.

Raw Timber Chairs

I just took a call from Chris down in Warrnambool and if your a woodwork buff like him, then you have proudly made your own timber table in your shed. Well Done.

But what are you going to do about chairs?

Chairs are extremely intricate to make and the joinery needs to be excellent so they can withstand daily action from the family. If your kids are the same as my 3 then they will swing on them, all kids do. So chairs cop a fair bit of stress and punishment day to day.

I stock and have access to a few designs of chairs in Ash and Messmate timber which are raw so you can finish them the same way you stained your table and get the setting looking great with the added value of being proud you made your own table.

In store I have lots of chairs to show you and when you combine all the choices of fully upholstered, timber backs, timbers including jarrah, blackwood, Ash, Messmate, fabrics, leathers, timber seats, cushion seats and stain colours, I have 1000’s of different chair combinations and one to suit you.






I can also stain some of my chairs specially to suit your table, all you need to do is bring me an offcut of the timber you used for the table, with the same finish you put on the table. I will get your selected chairs professionally stained and colour blended for a showroom finish that will compliment your handmade table and impress the family.

Sometimes buying chairs separately can be a little more expensive but when your sitting on a good quality chair and family and friends are raving about your table, you will be pleased you had a crack and handcrafted your own table.

Google Streetview inside my Showroom

If you would like to take a look inside my showroom you can from the comfort of your PC, laptop, iPad or smartphone.

I recently had Google street view done inside my showroom.

A special camera was used using a series of about 150 photos taken on a 360 degree tripod, Google’s software takes care of the rest allowing you to literally “look around” inside my showroom.

You can navigate around using the white arrows just the way you look at your house and letterbox using street view.

Just follow this link and get a feel for the quality timber furniture I have and don’t forget we will make furniture to order perfect to suit your home.

So if you cant see what you need get in touch and we will make something specially for you.


Thanks Mark Mortelliti
