We have been out on the chainsaw docking and grading the last of the CSR Pyrmont Sugar Wharf Piers. Back in 2010 we salvaged the piers from this awesome old wharf. We sawed the round piers into squares, and then carefully stabilised them for 3 years to reduce the moisture content slowly.Read More

We've decided our Sawtooth Flooring is damn good looking – especially in Ash and Reds!
After some experimentation we discovered that the Ash and Reds both suit the tactile aesthetic of the rustic dressing really well. The light, blonde nature of Ash is a striking contrast with the dark checking and markings from the saw blades and the warmth of the Mixed Reds suits the aged patina really well.
Check out some installations and more info here.Read More
