This week I completed a pair of boardroom tables for Chobani Yoghurt, a Greek yoghurt manufacturer.
The design brief was recycled rustic timber tops with steel frames for that industrial look and approximately twice per year the company would like to link the two tables together moving them from separate rooms into the larger boardroom.
This created some careful thinking because each table would weigh in excess of 100kg. The result was we designed the tables in 2 halves. The metal base design incorporated inset legs at the middle with large industrial castor wheels.
This allows the table to be picked up at one end much like a wheelbarrow and transported easily into the next room when required.
Try Chobani Yoghurt next time your in the supermarket and if you need a timber boardroom table try me!
My Team member Ray got this email and pictures from one of our clients this week. Thanks for the photos Paul.
“This is how the installed wine cabinets look. as, I said, you gave me a much cheaper option for the cellar. The compartments are screwed together, and fixed at the top with ‘L ‘ brackets to the wall. Very solid! You might want to market this idea to other customers.Perhaps you had better order a few dozen more!” Thanks again for your smart idea. Paul
If you are a wine buff and have a collection of wine you may want to create a DIY wine cellar.
We currently stock these beautiful 31 bottle timber wine racks. $299 each.
Each box is 770mm wide x 620mm high and 300mm deep and holds 31 bottles but they could easily be fixed to walls and screwed together to make a full wall of timber wine racks to house 100’s of bottles.
They are an oak timber and the colour is a medium walnut stain which looks classy and brings out the grain nicely. They cannot be made to order and come in this one colour only.
We had a client in the showroom this week who stopped to look closely at the wine racks before telling us he had been quoted over $5500 to deck out a small section of his home as a wine cellar. He promptly purchased 7x of our new wine racks at $299 each saving himself over $3400 he was rapt.
Needless to say our first set of 10x have sold out and we have another 10 on the way.
They would make a great stand alone wine rack and a great Christmas present also for someone special.
Historic Blackwood Table
This week we had a unique project to complete which was to re furbish an 80 year old Blackwood table.
The table is full of history as it used to reside within the Collingwood town hall. The timbers run across the table top which is unusual and the thickness of the top is 45mm thick.
The blackwood table has some gorgeous grains and textures.
The top of the table has been fully refinished and re assembled as there were gaps in the boards and lots of marks scratches and dents.
The top is now beautiful and new again and good for another 100 odd years.
Would love to have this one in my own home.
