    Bench Tops and Vanities

    Modern finishes and adhesives on the high density old growth hardwoods allow us to confidently provide timber bench tops that will give an effective service life in excess of 10 years when maintained. Being solid timber they are relatively easy to re-finish with our preferred wax oil finishes.

  • Process

    Communication, Creation and Completion



    Contact us with your needs/ wants and we will interpret and prepare a Scope recommending materials, finishes and styles for you.



    From the Scope we will prepare an estimate of cost. If acceptable we will prepare a 3D drawing of your job and finish samples as needed. This gives us an opportunity to ensure we have an optimum design before any timber is cut.



    Your job is then made, based on the 3D drawings and finish samples. We are working with recycled timbers that only reveal themselves when the years of detritus is cleaned off them so no two finishes are ever the same, but will be close.



    When the product is finished we send a confirmation photo of the job and discuss times for delivery or installation. Production resources are finite, hence lead times vary subject to work flow.



    Once the product is delivered and installed you will have many years of enjoyment with it.

  • About Us

    Traditional Values. Modern Efficiencies


    Founder Bruce Cottrill, who has been in the manufacturing industry for 35 years, built Bib'n Brace on traditional values he learnt while working with his father who is a Danish Cabinet Maker.


    Resourceful/ Sustainable


    Our main source of timber is from demolition yards, the framing timbers that get pulled out of a house are still structurally sound to be used as furniture and be given a second chance before it is disregarded.
    We also source timber through the client themselves. Clients who are renovating or building new from a demolished lot, have some timbers salvaged and would like to have a part of the 'old house' in the new house. This is also a great way to keep costs down.
    Quality is measured by three factors - price, materials and a product's life span. Most competitors mistake quality for quantity, meaning all of their products are to the same size, design, and finish. We work very hard to make sure the door you are paying for is what you want (down to the finest detail) and it will withstand the test of family use.



    We work hard to develop open communication with all customers and build a strong relationship.
