Chopping Boards
Bruce and Cecelia Irvine

Using short pieces of 4 x 3 inch rimu framing, Bruce has made two chopping boards which show off the end grain of the rimu heartwood timber. Now retired, this work
showcases Bruce’s skills as a qualified cabinet maker’s machinist and joiner.

Rimu Rolling Pin
Katie Smith

Katie chose a piece of rimu that was part of the original house frame and had a multitude of nail holes. She decided to make a rolling pin as this had been one of the early turning
projects on the Aoraki Polytechnic woodturning course that she is currently undertaking. Katie loves to bake and would be lost without a rolling pin in her kitchen.

Finding a use for a small timber
offcut, this simple coaster is a way to
show the beautiful blue patterned lino
found in the wardrobe of the front
bedroom of the house. It has been
finished with shellac.

Karen found creating ‘something useful’ from a bag of material scraps was an exciting challenge. She started by sewing small pieces of fabric together to create a larger piece of fabric. From there the idea of oven mitts was born.
