Last year we had the privilege of creating some more custom products for the Australian Defence Force School of Intelligence. To be placed in their mess hall, the team had requested we etch the history of the school onto an existing tabletop, as it was the only part of the Canungra base that wasn’t sporting their history within the mess hall. The mess hall was lined with several long tables that had been around for decades so it was a more unique way to engage people than just having old photos on the wall.
Using a pine timber to match the existing tables, the very old photos under went a intense trial and error period to find the perfect contrast to etch the images. The detailed artwork was etched into the top in one session over several hours so everything needed to be perfect. The piece was then treated with a high gloss glass coat to ensure resistance to damage throughout its lifetime. We also took care of refinishing the table frame with a new paint job to bring it back to life.
The feedback from the School of Intelligence was overwhelming as everyone was thrilled with the final outcome. Did you know we create custom furniture pieces? We can create pieces for events & marketing as well as more permanent pieces. If you have a project in mind, get in contact today!
