MAKERS: Creek street


With over hundred year old timber donated by RSW members Emily & Georgia we needed some expert help, tools and patience to finish the communal tables under the large beams in the cafe. Ollie is a long time supporter and passionate about all things Japanese, is supplementing his geotechnical engineering day job with a deep passion for timber detailing and hence, threw his hands up and opened his Creek Street Workshop to us to lovingly restore and improve the wharf wood into a luscious dining surface that looks like it's always been here. After many late nights and litres of resin, we could not be happier with the result!
