Originally established in 1976, the North End Boardriders is well known as one of the Gold Coast’s most prestigious and longest running surf clubs. From its scenic home base in front of the Southport Surf Life Saving Club to its long list of local legends and rippers, including Joe Engel, Wayne McKewen, Michael ‘Munga’ Barry, Scott Wildin, Dave ‘Rasta’ Rastovich and more, the North End Boardriders have definitely earned their spot among the most respected surf clubs in Australia.
In celebration of their 40th anniversary, the North End Boardriders created a 150+ page book commemorating the past, present and future of their Gold Coast club staple. With an array of rare photographs, interviews and more, the book was worthy of a customised presentation befitting of its prized content.
For the night of the North End Boardriders 40th Anniversary Celebration, we created custom built, handmade timber presentation boxes, each with a printed timber face with leather-bound spine. With an internal tray customised to fit the printed book, it’s safe to say that we honoured these local legends to the best of our ability.

Working with different materials and techniques is kind of our bread and butter. So we were more than happy to have a crack at this presentation folder for the guys over at Oliver Hume and are very pleased with the outcome.
The design of the cover is inspired by the work of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It just takes one look at his work and the influences are made apparent.
The crew over at Five O’Clock Somewhere wanted a cool unique folder for their extensive wine list. They say; “Our aim is to create a collection of wines that are interesting, purposeful and honest in a dare to be great environment.” So they needed something cool to match the wines.
So we created these custom hand bound folders, which were laser cut and etched out of Tasmanian Oak. UV printed with the their colourful logo which really pops on the Tassie oak; then they were hand bound with black leather to give it a really classy finish.
Overall we’re happy with the outcome and think they’ll look great in their surroundings down in South Australia.
Our on site book-binder created these hand bound custom folders for the guys at Metropolis for a project for Flour Mill in Sydney. The Flour Mill is going to be a real estate development “…where parkland, pedestrian areas and new internal streets seamlessly connect the apartments and terrace homes with their wider environment. The past becomes the foundation for a new, dynamic and contemporary neighbourhood.”
The Folder had to be made to suit the overall branding. So we created these hessian wrapped custom hand-bound folders with a black leather interior. We added a clip lock system to make it easier to update or change the inside content and with the incorporation of a UV print onto the front with the fantastic colour that the Flour Mill are using in their logo have tied it all together nicely and created a modern but also nostalgic look.
These custom made sample boards for Robina Group Riverlily came up a treat. With our joinery incorporated with laser cut and etched timber face, the outcome is a very stylish and functional piece.
When Riviera approached us for some sample books to be made and sent in time for the Florida boat show, we jumped at the opportunity. So we created these custom-made timber laser etched/leather bound books that turned out great!
We recently teamed up with the guys at Mighty Mighty Cue & Brew to do some menus and wall art pieces for the brand new American BBQ and Smokehouse Restaurant that is opening in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. The menus are made out of American Walnut with 3 different colour edging to represent the Drinks, Food and Desert menus. The large playing card wall hangings are also made from Walnut and feature laser etched characters over the top of painted graphics. The whole project was great fun to put together. If you are in Brisbane, make sure you swing by Mighty Mighty to check it all out and hook in to some ribs and beer while you are there!
These are some menu covers we did for Ryans Bar at the Treasury Casino, Brisbane. All handmade with a leather back and spine, veneered timber front cover and a laser etched logo.
