The Melbourne Home Show - 2017

The Melbourne Home Show  was held over four huge days at the MCEC . Christopher was proud to be involved with the collaboration between Hydrowood and Whelan The Warehouse , creating an award winning stand for 2017. This handcrafted Whiskey Cabinet has been designed and constructed by Christopher, utilising Huon Pine salvaged by Hydrowood from Lake Pieman. Huon Pine trees are some of the oldest and rarest in the world, and grow exclusively in Tasmania.  Taking around 500 years to mature, it is incredible to note that this timber started growing before Australia had been discovered and before the world's oldest Whiskey distillery - Old Bushmills   had been established in 1608. No detail has been left out, with the interior fitted with Tasmanian Kangaroo leather, smoked mirrors, a touch open door and the striking Huon Birdseye veneer. This Whiskey cabinet is available for purchase, or Christopher can customise one to suit your needs. The Blackwood Credenza,
