Why do we make the things we do?

Lockdown 6 has emanated in Melbourne, with all the same difficulties, challenges and opportunities that seem to be integrated into everyday life now. Here are some of the projects that the Altona Woodies have come up with, using materials squirrelled away in the workshop or sourced from local suppliers.

Winding sticks – Bob S. Made from Mountain Ash floorboards donated by another club member, with Ebony, Huon Pine and Jarrah inlay. 
Otways Myrtle stool – Graeme. A deceptively simple, floating design – very comfortable – sourced from Urban Salvage, Spotswood.
Ash’s mobile cocktail bar – purposeful up-cycling, much supported by Woodies

Workbench made by Fiona in a week-long intensive with Phoebe Everill, using a mix of eucalypt, from a Daylesford supplier.
