How to im­prove your home or of­fice with re­cy­cled tim­ber cre­ations

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR HOME YOUR BACKYARD -

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.

NAT­U­RAL BEAUTY: Sun­dara Cre­ations owner Mar­cus An­nett caught up with Amara Vanek from Queens­land Yacht Char­ters to pre­view the new of­fice dis­play he built from re­cy­cled tim­ber last Mon­day.
