Microbats in mailboxes…I know what you’re thinking and no, it’s not the latest TV series on ABC Kids. Sadly it’s just one example of the desperate times facing our homeless native animals, along with Sugar Gliders in banana fronds and Feathertail Gliders in electricity boxes. So what’s this got to do with recycled timber?
Imagine if you took all the sawdust produced in a furniture and joinery workshop and turned it into something useful. That’s exactly what inspired Thor Diesendorf to create our first Fire Briquettes, 10 years ago.
We have a varied mix of people working with us here at Thor’s Hammer and thought it was a good opportunity to introduce you to some! First cab off the rank is David from our Sales and Design team. We took five and asked him a few questions.
On Wednesday this week we had our very last day at the Brickworks after 25 years. The end of a huge last two weeks of 12 hour days sorting and packing the last of our machinery and timbers, and the end of an era for Thor’s Hammer.
Good dry recycled hardwood offcuts for sale- easy and hot to burn. 95% of the offcuts are docked to a good length - there may be the occasional longer piece.
We will have a bobcat on site on Saturday to load your trailer and it all must go on the day as our lease ends soon.
We are in the final stage of the relocation. Come and grab some discounted recycled timbers and help us with the move! All sale stock is sold in packs and with a range of sizes starting from $25.
Our machinery is heading over to the new site and our joinery workshop will be in operation at Mildura St by Monday 17 December.
If you live in Canberra, and are a follower of architecture and design, you will no doubt know Enrico Taglietti. Born in Milan, Italy 1926, Dr Taglietti moved to Canberra in 1956, where he has made a profound impact on the architectural landscape of our city.
We are finally hooking in to our fit out at Mildura St at last. It’s looking better over there every day.
If you are into the rustic look, you will like our rough sawn Oregon! Rescued from a building in Bathurst, and turned into cladding in Canberra, it’s a great option for an internal feature wall.
