This is built with recycled timber. I built a lot of these cabinets many different sizes colours and shapes. Here are a couple of photos.
Made from kwila decking timber nailed to a steel painted frame. This structure was designed by me to have lots of airflow around the hot water system but also strong enough to resist the sun, rain and other factors.
Below you will see the makings of one of my arty pieces. I called it drink driving cabinet. Not that I drink and drive, I condemn it. There are too many lives lost to stupidity. Any way I had half meter flash flood through my factory in the Coorparoo floods and I lost a lot of photos of my furniture which I made over the years not to mention the damage to my tools equipment materials etc. No I wasn’t insured. Anyway they wouldn’t have paid me anyway.
The backbone of this piece is a steel frame 25x25mm box section. This is where I really started all my welding practice. Then I lined the frame in recycled hoop pine and painted it. Then I gave it the distressed look and varnished it.
Just working on a swimming pool pump filter cover. I was welding the structure in my workshop. And cladding a bench with beech wood.
Just a box which I made for a client.
This outdoor kitchen bench was built in 2000 for a client who enjoyed to cook outdoors. The whole backbone of the structure is a steel frame inside, cladded and sheeted with mini orb and kwila. There is a bar fridge inside as well as concealed gas bottles.
Below is a photo of one of many of my workshop steel tables. This one you could assemble and disassemble as I welded the nuts inside the box sections. I sheeted the top of them with ply wood.
I made these benches out of steel and decking. They are actually quite comfortable and have a swinging bracket which supports a plate that drops in and supports your food or drinks.
When I lived in Japan I enjoyed going to the temples. Here is an extension of what grander that you feel when your in front of an object/ building/ furniture. I visited one of the biggest timber buildings in the world “Todaiji Temple” in Nara Japan. So I incorporated the same feeling in some of my pieces of furniture.
Believe it or not, this is made of recycled shipping crates and pallets.
It is a two piece book case, it needs to be.
