We have been incoprorating LED lighting into some of our furniture recently. The terrific light output from such a physically small light allows us to design timber furniture with the ability to be creative with the use of LED lights.
The lights used in the stunning vodka cabinet are LED. The LED lights are in a very small strip which allows us to rebate the timber and mount the LED light flush with the timber. The flexible LED Light strip itself it approx 10mm wide and about 7mm deep.
In this made to order cabinet it sets a great mood of light highlighting the collection of unique Vodkas.
Its custom made to suit our client Cameron and he was very happy with the results.

I made this buffet for my Client Neil in Vermont about 5 years ago, but the glass top was made and supplied last week.
Neil recently came to me and asked if I could make a top to suit the buffet, I said yes of course no worries.
It got me thinking however that almost every chain store in the country would have to say “No”. No because they no longer import that model, or the size had changed, stain colours had changed, or they simply didn’t make hutch tops in the range at all to begin with.
It’s specialist work, matching timbers and stains and designing sizes to suit. It might surprise you that the top and bottom were actually made by different companies because things change over time as they always do.
As you can see with the attention to detail and our staining techniques the result is great and you would not know they were made at different times.
That’s what you get when you buy your furniture from a timber specialist, Local knowledge and skills which take time to craft and help you get terrific results in your home.
Best of all the work and the investment stays here in Australia supporting local business and employment.
