Wood School Wrap Tea Party

Well the first wood school class has finished their stools and met up to celebrate last Saturday. Stu made a nutella cake, Anna brought Gidget the Curly Coated Retriever, Joey's wife Phoebe came along too and so we got her to pretend to be Tookie (who was studying for uni exams) and along with Sarah and Tobey everyone looked pretty pleased with themselves.

That's pukka!

Pinkerton has landed a tasty project doing 15 pieces of custom furniture for Jamie Oliver’s soon-to-be opened Italian restaurant in Pitt Street in Sydney. Using enormous planks of recycled timber sourced locally through Round Two Timbers at Carrington, and featuring metalwork by Imagiron at Steel River, the suite of specially commissioned pieces includes numerous bar tables, waiters stations, menu boards and wine walls. Pinkerton has been working with a Sydney architect and Jamie’s design team in London to get the rustic look just right for the restaurant, which is the first Australian opening in Oliver’s worldwide ‘Jamie’s Italian’ chain. We'll post some images when the project is finished, for now here is a detail shot of a drawer on one of the chunky bread stations, and another of some recycled timber being glued up for benchtops.
