Workshop Open Day 2016

Sunday, July 31 2016

The Woodcraft Guild of the ACT have requested a workshop tour, so I have decided to hold an Open Day and invite anyone who is interested to come and have a tour of our new workshop modifications.

The Open Day runs from 10am to 2pm, Saturday August 6th.

I will use the Open Day to launch our new Beta Stool Kit. The Beta is now available for pre-production purchase from our website. We will be shipping the first batch on Betas on Friday 12th August 2016.

The Beta Stool Kit was designed by popular demand. After we introduced the Alpha Chair Kit back in 2015, we have been repeatedly asked “when are you going to do a bar stool?” We took the Beta Stool Kit prototype to the 2016 Sydney Timber and Working With Wood Show and we were blown away by the level of interest.

The Beta comes in FSC Victorian blackwood supplied by Corsair Sustainable Timbers. The kit is “hand tool friendly” and comes with a comprehensive set of written instructions. The instructions are undergoing final editing now and will be available on-line when the first batch of Betas are ready to ship (Friday August 12th). The Beta comes with all the components precision pre-machined, all the required hardware, floor protectors and gluing up cauls. All you need are tools, glue and a suitable finish.

Unlike the Alpha Chair Kit, the Beta has no pre-cut joinery; This is hardcore, old school "real" woodwork using hand tools! Now you can make a beautiful stool for your breakfast bar for less than $200 ea.

The Beta stool design comes off the back of our highly successful Waterfall and Wave stools. You can be confident that these stools are comfortable and strong.

We will also have a selection of old stock, including coffee tables, one-off stools, discontinued designs and workshop seconds that will be heavily discounted on sale at the Open Day.

I hope to see you there- Evan
