The extension mechanism is made entirely of spotted gum and the 350mm long leafs at each end operate independently - allowing for 3 lengths of the table. This table is based in the Shaker furniture design principles of function and practicality, principles we hold to at Thor's Hammer.Read More

A contemporary take on a traditional table.
Rohan Hunt designed this dark beauty with a client looking for a contemporary table that still showed the texture and rustic look of the recycled mixed red hardwoods the table is made from. This means the top was left resin-free to show an undulating sawtooth finish.Read More
When Rohan [Design & Sales] first met Anna & Josh they were renovating an old brick house in O'Connor. They came in to discuss ideas for a new kitchen and island bench in particular, with a few key elements in the brief. The result is a beautiful recycled Blackbutt kitchen, that’s become the centre of their home.Read More
You should meet Jackie Dunstone. Her Dad was a Dutch immigrant who served in the Canadian and Dutch armies as a photographer in Indonesia. He was forced to flee to Fremantle and then to Bondi after landing in hot water for selling photos to the CIA. He eventually met Jackie’s Mum who was working as a journalist in Forbes, NSW and they settled in our nation’s capital (Canberra for those readers outside the territory). Jackie spent her early years hanging out soaking up the Marimekko textiles and modernist timber furniture at interior design store "Studio 12” in Manuka, owned by Heather ‘Nikki’ Paral (Jackie’s Godmother). That’s the short version. It’s a rich story that undoubtedly set the scene for Jackie’s adventures as a multidisciplinary artist, entrepreneur and creative do’er.Read More

This Dovetail table is based on a traditional design from the Takayama area of Japan and is traditionally used in Japanese temple gate construction. The joint allows for movement in the timber as it can be tightened easily by tapping the dovetail further across, which is perfect for the extremes in the Canberra climate.
Made from Recycled Mixed Reds, we used a “sawtooth” finish to lightly dress the timber. This shows off the patina but lets the warmth of the timber shine through. This table is designed to seat 8, but we can scale up or down depending on your requirements.
This one has gone to our new Mixing Room Gallery where they used to mix all the bread before it made it’s way to the ovens. We are slowly filling it with examples of our work so that everything can be seen and sat at, making the design process even easier. It will be opening soon, but if you would like a sneak peek at this one get in touch.
Solving design problems is what we do here at The Hammer. This table came about when we were asked to make a small table with room for a laptop or newspaper to keep the top free of clutter.Read More
With our new street frontage the container office has been getting a lot of attention, and we thought it was a good opportunity to share how it was made and the finishes that we used.Read More

Our latest table has been a real treat to make. A modern take on the refectory table design, this style was originally made as a banquet table in medieval times. It earned this title as its designed to span across great halls and dining rooms to accommodate large numbers of people.Read More
This crew of builders are lucky enough to have recently set up camp in one of those beautiful 1930s duplex buildings in Murray Cres, Griffith. They've done a beautiful job fitting out the old spaces bringing the building back to it's raw bones.
The guys at Milin were a pleasure to collaborate with. They knew what they were after - old timbers in their raw natural form to accompany the use of glass and steel in the rest of the fitout - so we got to work.
Carefully picking the most rustic boards, packed with patina, we made a Ledge and Brace door to slide across the entrance to their conference room and timber stair treads and landings for the staircase. Doesn't the timber look great in this raw ground and brushed state!
