Refectory Table & Bench Seats

We want to extend a huge thank you to Anna, Liam, Thor and anyone else who had anything to do with designing and making our table. We LOVE it! We LOVE the benches too! It's magnificent and makes our kitchen/dining area feel much more like home. It even smells good!

A special thank you to you Anna for your professionalism and patience in designing it for us and to Liam for his beautiful work. 

Please also pass on our thanks to Ben, Liam and the other men who delivered it on Monday. We were really impressed by the care with which they handled the process of getting here and up the stairs.

The whole process was a pleasure! Thank you!!

Warm regards,

Anna & Andrew Martin - Yarralumla


Custom Built Bathroom Vanity

Once again I have to say how happy I am with the vanity.   You are all just amazing artisans and should be so proud of the work that you do.  It is art. No wonder you are all so busy.  Everyone can see the level of care and workmanship that you put into every piece.

Thanks again, and I cannot wait to get it into my bathroom.

Custom Built Folding Leaf Table - Recycled Spotted Gum

I found Thor, Hiroshi and Ben a pleasure to deal with. I especially found the design process to be a surprisingly pleasant experience, and was pleased that while acknowledging that what I wanted was going to be difficult, no-one ever said it couldn't be done. Admittedly we had to compromise, but I think we've got a better design as a result. I love the fact that, when fully-extended, no-one will have to straddle a leg!

I love the way the timber seems to glow. I love the clean simplicity of the design. I love the way that Hiroshi has put the timber together so that the table is beautiful either open or closed.

I am ecstatic about the quality of my table. I think you have built me an artwork that will be handed down in my family for generations.

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for our beautiful new bookcase! We absolutely love it and the chaps who delivered and installed it were fabulous (including Benedict) who crafted our previous Dresser and Harry who crafted the new bookcase. We can't really tell you how delighted we are! Thanks very much indeed!

Mike & Bev, Wanniassa

THANK YOU so much for the benchtop! It is really beautiful, can't wait to see it installed. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Gerry & the craftsmen who worked on it, especially for the time and care they took to select matching woods with such great character."

Our front door, built and installed last week, has drawn many compliments from a range of our friends who have been visiting us over the last few days. We are thrilled with it and would like to compliment Ben and Sam on a fine installation. It was a pleasure to see the way in which they worked and you can be very proud of them. (I love it, especially the peep hole. Pam)."

I just wanted to pass on our sincerest thanks for our new (recycled) Blackbutt kitchen bench. Our experience with Thor's Hammer has been nothing but positive and every member of staff we have spoken to along the way has been helpful and friendly. We would especially like to thank yourself, Scott and Ben for being so willing to meet with us and for keeping us up to date with what was happening with our bench. It is clear that the staff at Thor's Hammer are not only professional but also passionate about what they do. As for the bench.......well we can only say that it is stunning. The craftsmanship and love that has gone into it is clearly evident. It will be a treasured feature of our house for many, many years to come. You have given us a truly unique centrepiece of our new extension. Once again, thank you. We will take great pleasure in recommending you to everyone who comments on our spectacular bench."

We couldn't be happier with the beautiful dining table made for us by Thor and his team.  It is even better than we had imagined and everyone who sees it asks where we got it from!  The team at Thor's Hammer clearly love what they do and strive for the highest-quality of craftsmanship. The results speak for themselves." 

Lee & Samantha Scott, ACT

This is just a quick note to let you know thatthe bookcases were build promptly and without a glitch. They look terrific and I'm very happy with the result. I'm delighted with the level of service provided by both of you at the office and I also need to highlight the excellent work of Daniel and his explanations. Daniel's instructions made my work much easier and contributed to he final outcome. Good on everyone of you!"

Our house is finished, is beautiful and works.  Mal McNaughton did a great job with your timber, as the attached photos show.” Thanks greatly for you input and the lovely timber you sold us. 

Philip Hughes & Marjorie Sullivan, Bingi NSW

...I have just finished building my deck using your recycled Australian Black Butt hardwood as the feature decking material. The timber looks beautiful. Cynthia & I are proud to have it on display on our property at Bonython. We will without doubt recommend Thor’s Hammer to any person we know who is seeking quality recycled material and quality workmanship.
Thank you to Thor, for your advice and for accommodating us with our order so late in the year. Thank you to Amy for your very professional manner & great smile. Thank you to Scott and all the other team members who did so well to get our small order done so quickly at short notice and under pressure."

Their careful selection and machining of recycled timber has enabled our company many exquisite bench tops and solid timber doors. The highlight of Thor’s supply to us would be the Cockle Bay project at Darling Harbour. In this project Thor’s Hammer had to machine very large section timber to very fine tolerances to enable it to be perfectly bolted together in a decorative structure. Everything fitted perfectly. The timber from old Bega Bridge was brought to life again. Thor Diesendorf has a passion for his company and the product he works with, which makes dealing with recycled timber a pleasant process.”

…We love our recycled ash floors in fact, I’d go as far to say they make the house!”

Harry Lang, Majors Creek

We are very pleased with the Ash bench tops you produced, the colour and grain of the timber is beautiful – they are the focal point of the kitchen and living areas. We’re very pleased that we have the chance to use recycled timber and congratulate you on you initiative in making this available.”
