This is Rohan. He likes hiking, bike riding and taking photos with his drone. He also works at Thor’s Hammer and is another member of our talented Sales and Design crew.
Chelsea Lemon is a Canberra based designer and maker who works with timber. Many of her pieces include foliage and plant themes, mixed with interactivity and the decorative woodworking technique 'parquetry'. She’s no stranger to the crew at Thor’s Hammer or Canberra’s design community, but we thought we’d get to know her a little better.
“Am I ever going to use this?” We’ve all asked this question of our inner hoarder at some point. Fortunately, Canberra FM executive Zak Davies must have been hiding in his shed during the Marie Kondo’s war on stuff.
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.
