Massive Blue Gum Island Benchs

The kitchen was still under construction when we took these photos but you get the idea. The solid timber bench was 6 metres in length and 1.2 metres wide. It was made from recycled timber from the old Southport Spit jetty and finished with 3 generous coats of marine grade, UV rated, heat resistant satin poly. Modern straight lines are a real feature in this kitchen. Very simple design but doesn’t it look awesome!

Kiln drying kills borers, air drying does not.

Kiln drying stabilises the timber and prevents it from cracking, twisting, warping, cupping and going mouldy.

Dry timber = stable timber.
