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

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!
