Jewlery display cases

bought secondhand. All I had to do was fit them and make them look good.

Fusions Gallery brunswick street

as people were always looking closely at pottery, the interior finish had to be exceptional

its all in the detail

You cant make perfection, but you have to try to get as close as possible

Gallery Worthy

I thought it turned out well and was worthy of a place on it's own shelves

Fusions Gallery Brunswick street

Has a nice welcoming entrance

Fusions Gallery Brunswick street

Stringers and treads

New hand made stairs. Old stairs were at the other end poorly constructed.

a door was missing from the 140 y/o church, so i manufactured a federations style door on site. it was made from Australian hardwood, measured 2500mm H x 1100mm W x 55mm T. it was rather heavy and took 3 of us to swing it (fit it)

Extension

an addition to a 80 y/o house. to be used as a solicitors office. Roof tiles were original clay and had to be sourced 2/h. had to "manufacture" windows onsite. Unfortunately I had no control over the paint and colour side of things

made this huge mobile case out of 4 bit's supplied. It looks as good as it gets for the affordable price.
