Stairway to heaven, bunkbeds, desk and bookcase in one.

April 18, 2018

Our brief was to make a fun bed, in a bunk style, so a friend could sleep over and include a desk and a bookcase.

We designed the bunks, desk and shelves to all fit snug and create an environment that was fun and practical.

We utalised the window light for the deskspace and included shelves at the end of the top bunk and nooks for favorite toys.

The funky ladder stairs to the top bunk were carefully designed for safety and ease of use.

Our client was very happy with the end result, and their child just loves sleeping in their room now and can’t wait to have sleepovers with friends.

The greatest pleasure was seeing his face light up when we had finished creating his new stairway to heaven.

The Gregory Terrace Foundation asked us to make a new Honour board for the World War II roll of Honour.

They wanted it to match the existing Honour Board,  we matched the new Honour board in every detail, we handed turned and hand carved every detail to produce an identical piece.

Our Client is very happy with the end result, and this board has taken its place alongside the original in The Great Hall at Gregory Terrace.
