Turned Couch Legs

If you’ve ever watched the Simpsons, you’ll likely agree with the sentiment that a good couch is a lifelong investment. That doesn’t mean, of course, that it couldn’t do with a face-lift from time to time. Reupholstering a couch is an expensive and timely endeavor… but changing over the legs? Well, that can be done in an afternoon. We offer legs for couches of all different shapes and styles, and even chair & dining legs to match some styles.  Read more...

Table Legs for Woodstock Winery

Table Legs for Woodstock Winery

Woodstock Winery are a family owned, South Australian business much like our own; located just outside of Adelaide in McLaren Vale. More than 20 years ago they approached us to produce a custom stand/table leg for their winery, which we were more than happy to turn and supply for them! The pieces were so unique however, that when it came time to update and replace them, they were unable to find anything similar on the market.

Casuarina Shopping Centre Fitout

Casuarina Shopping Centre Fitout

The Casuarina shopping centre is the largest complex in the Northern Territory of Australia. Earlier in 2017 they employed the services of Alpha Joinery, to do the fitout of the food hall and surrounding areas. There was a very large amount of timber involved in the job, and although Alpha Joinery were able to do much of it, to quicken up the process they decided to outsource a number of the different products that needed to be made.
