I'm looking forward to the first coat of polish on this panel.
The last day of the Melbourne home show has just started. If you're heading to the show today, be sure to call into the @whelanthewarehouse and @hydrowood site to say hi.
A huge day getting this 4.2m American Oak boardroom table up to the eighth floor. Inlayed into the top are two @hydrowood Fiddleback Blackwood crucifixes. I have made other liturgical pieces in the past but this is one of the largest so far.
@hydrowood Fiddleback Blackwood credenza with my signature legs now on display at the Melbourne home show.
This whiskey cabinet's story started some time ago. Tasmania's Huon pine trees are some of the oldest and rarest in the world. Huon is only found In Tasmania and takes around 500 years to mature. It is hard to imagine that this timber had started growing before Australia had be discovered and before the the worlds oldest distillery Old Bushmills was established in 1608 Constructed from Huon Pine that was salvaged by @hydrowood from Lake Pieman. This whiskey cabinet is on show at the @hia_au Melbourne home show for the next four days at the Melbourne convention centre.
A bit of machine maintenance tonight on the Wadkin RK. Fresh blades set and jointed and every oil/grease point topped up. Ready for some Blackwood, celery top and oak in the morning
A very happy customer sent me a picture of their new bathroom that they have just finished and what a huge transformation from the old bathroom. The vanity and mirror are made from Hydrowood Blackwood.
There's not much more Melbourne than watching Essendon vs Carlton at the MCG with my daughter Emily eating pies #gobombers #MCG #melbourne #fourandtwentypies #victoria #essendonfc
Some birds eye Huon Pine that I took out of the press today. It should make a nice feature panel
