The outside of the box shows the natural beauty of timber, while the inside reflects its origins from inside the laundry cupboard! Hidden catches release the lid and drawers. This

If walls could talk, they would have a lot to teach us. With this in mind, Kilmarnock Enterprise’s team set out to make something enriching and educational out of the beams of a

While these spinning tops are too time-consuming to be commercially viable, Klaus makes them for friends’ birthday presents. The tops became a metaphor for ‘doing another turn’ or another year, and Klaus feels that they help keep the spark of childhood alive. This childish spark has helped Klaus come up with ideas for recycling projects and the idea of
‘doing another turn’ also connects to the values of the Whole House Reuse project. Nails from the house are embedded in the wood and help keep the top delicately balanced.
