A Quick Summary
The Central Coast Sustainability Association organised a showcase to promote sustainable business on the Central Coast. As Founding members of the CCSA we were involved from concept to closing night.
It was a massive effort put in by all, and with only 3 months to organises the inaugural CCSA Sustainable Business showcase, we had the best possible outcome. Over the two days we had 14 Speakers 10 Exhibitors and 155 visitors, we were at full capacity.
It was fantastic to work with some amazing people and to have the community support the event. We are looking forward to the next one!

For us, it is easier to talk in Themes rather than Finishes as each piece of recycled timbers is unique but will fit within a broad theme that has a range of colours and textures.
Great way to bring character and warmth into your home
Weathered timbers, brushed to smooth leaving the original saw and wear marks. Colouring will be impacted by exposure to sunlight, dirt and in some cases smoke. Grey weathered timbers are most sought after and consequently we are always on the look out for more.
We use a handful of finishing techniques for our Rustic style:
Thick lines, clean sections, traditionally painted the white-grey range
Hampton style is very clean substantial look with painted surfaces contrasting with feature natural finishes like stone, iron or timber. Paint finishes can be rubbed back to show subtle colour changes of different layers of paint or aged with coloured waxes to give the timeless, comfortable classic look.
Clean timbers with defined lines
Having spent my lifetime growing up with a Danish master craftsman, I have an appreciation for the effort it takes to think through the obvious and ignore all that is not essential and emphasise what matters.
In our Scandinavian theme we leave the timber to be timber, finished with subtle Matte oils that feel soft and smooth. Where the grain needs carving out to remove hard edges or splinters we do, blending the carving with the natural grain. Where a joint is required, we make a feature of it, where strength is required, we ensure it is obvious.
"You have stolen the show. Massive thank you for your work. Everyone loves it"
"Bruce designed a pergola for our back garden and it looks absolutely fantastic... Stunning timber and great design, it creates a unique outdoor space. Bruce and Matt did a wonderfully efficient job installing the pergola... Bruce is great to deal with, he is very committed to his work, a great craftsman."
