How to improve your home or office with recycled timber creations
THE storm surge of Cyclone Dylan proved to be a blessing in disguise for Sundara Creations owner Marcus Annett, who spent the past week collecting recycled timber and waste off local beaches.
Mr Annett creates stunning, nautical themed furniture and artwork from recycled timber which he sources from Shute Harbour and areas outside of the marine park.
“I have plenty of materials after the storms including deck pieces from a boat wreckage and old mooring lines that washed up onto Snowes Beach,” he said.
“These timbers have so much character and transform into timeless pieces of furniture.”
While on his collection missions, Mr Annett also removes plastics, rubbish and excess marine debris to help care for the local environment, which he says is an integral part of his business.
Mr Annett was recently commissioned to create a unique display area at the new Queensland Charter Yachts office in Abell Point marina. Sales and marketing executive Amara Vanek said the display encompassed art, practicality and beauty with excellent attention to detail. “I was looking for something unique to feature in our display area so I had a meeting with Marcus at his workshop in Shute Harbour and he was extremely easy to work with,” she said.
“We are extremely happy and we have had a fantastic response from our clients.”
Mr Annett also offers a professional carpentry and restoration service for households and commercial businesses. His business also features a state-of-the-art laser engraver and CNC wood carving machine that creates unique 3D structures from photographs.
Mr Annett said the sign writing and carving applications of the machines were limitless and encouraged local businesses to see how they could change their branding in as little as 20 minutes.
