"It's a Family Affair" - Recycled Timber & Beyond

We're not going to lie, the last few weeks and months have been beyond exhausting. 3am finishes have become the norm and that even extended to an all-nighter last week to ensure that we met the last day of guaranteed delivery with AusPost.

As a small family business (and when we say small, we mean husband and wife, with a near-six year old either helping or hindering depending on which way the wind is blowing), we love doing what we do and wouldn't change it for the world (apart from maybe the ability to get a few hours more sleep...)

It's a journey filled with passion, creativity, and a strong commitment to excellence. Join us on a captivating journey as we dive into the intricacies of recycled timber, crafting not just gifts but narratives that resonate with the soul. Our unique blend of recycled timber creations, ranging from exquisite home decor pieces to custom signs, speaks volumes about our dedication to sustainability and local support.

There has been a huge influx in customers, followers and website visitors over the last few months, so we wanted to take this opportunity to share what we are all about and how we see things progressing in the future. You can also stalk our photos and bios here.

Local Roots, Global Craftsmanship

Our story begins at a local timber yard, a haven of possibilities nestled in the heart of Lismore. Beyond the grains and knots lies a narrative of community, sustainability, and a commitment to local roots. We expertly transform these raw materials into exquisite home decor pieces and custom signs that capture the essence of moments.

Beyond Decor: Crafting Timeless Memories

Our creations are more than just decoration; they are opportunities for memories and emotions; each piece encapsulates a unique narrative. We're not just about selling gifts; we're about curating experiences and crafting memories that endure.
