When this cracking piece of Marri came across the desk of β€˜chief of colour picking’ at πŸ§‚πŸ¦†β€¦.. it demanded a palette of colour that would enhance the grain figure around the 2 branch unions in the Marri and the chief has delivered…. a stunning balance of colour… drooling sophistication and class πŸ€€πŸ€€β€¦.. and of course those πŸ§‚πŸ¦† swirls provides the depth to the metallic bronze, copper and gold blend 🀩🀩🀩

First completed project for 2022 from πŸ§‚πŸ¦†! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³β€¦. This beautiful table is compiled from West Australian Blackbutt and Health of Mind Art β€˜Misty Blue’ resin. The beautiful blonde colour of the Blackbutt is perfectly balanced with the misty blue resin and colour and the Anotec Silver Grey square legs formed from 10mm steel plate. This piece is 2.4m x 1.1m in size and is rock solid!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ§‚πŸ¦†

Happy new year and all of the very best in 2022 to all of the wonderful πŸ§‚πŸ¦† customers, suppliers, fellow makers and amazing supporters of πŸ§‚πŸ¦†. Looking back on 2021 it was an amazing journey of being in business for the first full 12 months …. It was exhausting, frustrating, physically demanding and a grind but the learning has been enormous … huge … gigantic … probably one of the biggest learning curves in my life !! …. All of which makes πŸ§‚πŸ¦† excited for what 2022 will bring in creating bespoke pieces from precious West Aussie Timbers. I look back on what one πŸ§‚πŸ¦† created in those 12 months and couldn’t be prouder …. So pumped to get going in again in 2022!! … look forward to again sharing with you all the πŸ§‚πŸ¦† journey in 2022πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ§‚πŸ¦†

The final piece for 2021! And it’s a beauty 🀩🀩🀩. The 1m x 750mm Sheoak coffee table with Turquoise resin is the final piece out of the πŸ§‚πŸ¦† factory before closing down for a bit of much need R&R. The Sheoak colour in the flesh has much deeper orange tones than in the pics and has some beautiful lacing through the grain which I hope you can also pick up on! Compiled with the traditional πŸ§‚πŸ¦† mitred timber legs for a cracking solid timber look πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ‘.

πŸ§‚πŸ¦† will be taking a break from the grind for a bit and would like to wish all of my amazing customers, suppliers and fellow makers who are source of inspiration for the πŸ¦†, a very merry Christmas and a very happy new year …
Looking forward to continuing this amazing journey with you all in 2022 with many more πŸ‘πŸ‘ to come!

The end result is a stunning Marri table top with a full offset river down one side and a lagoon effect on the other …. But this piece was a massive challenge for πŸ§‚πŸ¦†β€¦. From leaking resin through the side wall of the slab during the pour through to gum vein that just did not want to fill!! This one had it all!!! … but very pleased with the end result and the midnight blue gives depth to the resin that mimics the darkness of the ocean floor but also contrast the blonde Marri just perfectly!!

Sheoak boards have been a big feature in 2021 for πŸ§‚πŸ¦† but mainly combined with blues so wanted to give some Sheoak a run with Pitch Black to get an appreciation of eye popping contrast of the orange tones of the lacing Sheoak grain against the glass like black resin and it’s just πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯…. These Sheoak pieces were surprisingly a contrast amongst themselves with the deep orange transitioning out to the more , almost yellow tones. πŸ€©πŸ€©πŸ€©πŸ€©β€¦. After seeing this piece come to life its inspired πŸ§‚πŸ¦† to do a larger piece in the new year πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±β€¦ πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ§‚πŸ¦†

Tonight we have an old favourite … Jarrah with the vibrant Granny Smith Green…
a colour that lifts and brings to life the pinky red tones in these pieces of timber. Some beautiful tone graduation across the timber, which was somewhat unexpected but now I only wish I remembered which pile I took this from!!! As it’s always nice to reference a finished colour of timber to what it looks like in its rough and dirty state in the timber rack!!
…. I am sure I’ll remember eventually 🀣🀣🀣

Fresh out of the πŸ§‚πŸ¦† workshop is this cracking Marri dining table with pitch black resin. The Marri in this piece was from slabs just wide enough to facilitate the required 1.1m width and has some remarkable cathedral grain feature running down each side … the 40mm solid table top is sitting on steel U shaped legs made from 10mm plate and ensures the piece will not be moving in a hurry!!! Also installed x2 c channel table stiffeners to help provide more stability across the slabs … I’ve always said it … the pitch black and Marri are just …. Damn!

I don’t know about everyone else but πŸ§‚πŸ¦† has a pile of board timber that is stashed away for β€˜that project’ and this piece of Marri has come from the top of that pile!!! …. And I think it’s fair to say it hasn’t disappointed πŸ§‚πŸ¦†β€¦. Cracking colour transition across the natural edge towards the inner heart … so distinctive!!! … and given this one was going to be poured with Red Russet I thought it was time to rip this piece out of Marri out of the cupboard so to speak! 🀩🀩🀩

Probably the combo of 2021! Sheoak with a combination of a couple of blues that combined provide that ocean feel and for those not from Western Australia the orange tones of the Sheoak mimic the red landscape of our far north west β€¦πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ§‘β€¦ will no doubt be very nostalgic for many! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ§‚πŸ¦†

How to bring a couple of very deep brown pieces of old Jarrah to life ?!?! …. Combine them with a vibrant solid Pearl resin river and a those magestic πŸ§‚πŸ¦†swirls and those pieces of Jarrah spring to life!! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯… no better contrast than a dark rich timber like Jarrah with light and bright pigments like this Pearl …..

Your probably not going to believe me when I tell you that this is the first time πŸ§‚πŸ¦† has used this blue!!! 🀣🀣 … this beautiful blue is Ice Blue Shimmer from @colourobsessionstudio with some πŸ§‚πŸ¦† pearl magic added for good measure … of course! Love this colour along side the colour of the Marri and the rounded corners and edges just add that little extra 🀩🀩🀩🀩.

It’s been great punching out a bunch of solid Marri chopping boards over the last few days …. Some beautiful pieces of timber that have been transformed into some functional pieces that will last a lifetime!! … the colours through the Marri is just πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜β€¦have a bunch more to do and chipping away at it trying to keep ahead! πŸ€£πŸ€£β€¦ also got the CNC to pay its way and cut out some juice grooves for πŸ§‚πŸ¦† 🀣🀣

There is no doubt that Jarrah with a vibrant colour like this Turquoise Bay Shimmer will give any timber a run for its money in the πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ stakes …. These beaut pigeon pair side tables (1200mm x 450mm) recently finished up just show how versatile Jarrah can be with a bit of colour…. The Jarrah used in this project was milled up by πŸ§‚πŸ¦† and πŸ§‚πŸ¦†FIL many years ago and to see such pieces come to life is unbelievably rewarding!!!!

Had the pleasure of completing this whopping 750mm Marri board today with a striking Pearl resin river…. The Marri in this piece has a beautifully figured branch union that had just the right amount of rot that was cleaned out and allowed the resin to flow into the branch creating a little Pearl harbour… 🀣🀣🀩🀩🀩. Lovely colouring through this Marri that goes well with the Pearl!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ§‚πŸ¦†

When I start a project with a wonky grey slab of Marri timber with cracked edges big enough to run your finger through, I am always unsure of what the end result is going to be. πŸ€”πŸ€”β€¦. During the build you get a hint of what lies beneath and hope its going to be good but to honest this one has just blown πŸ§‚πŸ¦† away! So many features through the timber demanding your attention and a colour palette that screams pure class. Due to the natural edges being well and truly past there best I decided to flood the edges in the resin pour process ,then grind back to the timber edge once cured to ensure perfect pe*******on into the timber and the stunning contrast that resulted made the effort worthwhile … even though about 1/4 the way through the removal it was a bit 🀬🀬🀯😱πŸ₯΄β€¦ I wouldn’t be in a hurry to do that again!! Definitely rocketed into πŸ§‚πŸ¦† all time hall of fame for sure! The table was paired up with a couple of Marri bench seats with grain to good to be hidden by your backside !! Cracking pieces of timber! Please enjoy the details through the timber on this one!πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

Probably one of πŸ§‚πŸ¦†β€˜s fav metallic green is this Candy Apple green from @healthofmindart.

Fresh out of the πŸ¦†πŸ§‚ factory today is this solid Marri sideboard / hutch with a recess for a small bar fridge to slot into. I do enjoy integrating subtle resin colour and styling into traditional pieces especially when the colour allows the tone and grain of the beautiful timber to come to life as it has done in this piece β€¦πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜β€¦ the top piece has some amazing grain and although not as gummy and figured as the Marri you are used to seeing, this piece showcases some of the other amazing qualities of this beautiful West Aussie timber … the base carcass was constructed with boards from the same log and πŸ§‚πŸ¦† was able to get some good grain and colour continuity in the panel joinery….. love having the natural edges of both sides as well..πŸ€©πŸ€©πŸ€©β€¦ was a joy to pull this one together! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ§‚πŸ¦†

Have really enjoyed making a few pieces with Camphor Laurel over the past month and will be chucking a few more pieces in the shopping trolley next time I am restocking ….
