HARD AT WORK!

We have just finished a bench seat for a subdivision in Hanmer Springs and now we are working on a earthquake memorial seating area over looking Christchurch,designed by business partner Bruce Steele for the Cashmere Primary School.

Photo shows archway and gates which will be used in the new memorial seating. Will post more photos when it is finished.

Amazing where working with Macrocarpa timber takes you!!

WEKA.A at ART IN A GARDEN:

Weka.A were delighted to show some of their macrocarpa furniture at Art in a Garden which is held every year after the Culverden Fete.

What a marvellous display of Sculptors, Painters, Potters, Glass and Garden Furniture.

There are certainly some clever people in the world.

With live music great food and wine available it makes a great day out.As it is over 3 plus days it means you can visit when you want to.

I am sure for Christchurch people it must be like a tonic to visit Flaxmere and Art in a Garden. Everything seems so calm and serene a change from the rip tear and bust of the earthquaked city.

Have included a couple of photos of some of the Weka.A macrocarpa furniture that we were proud to display.

This photo shows a closer view – but if you have your own ideas please contact us we are happy to work on your design – the choices are limitless.
Maccrocarpa is such a great timber for outdoor funiture.

Weka.A supplying tables and seats to Preston Downs Subdivision

Weka.A have been busy making 4 large Macrocarpa tables and 8 seats for the Preston Downs subdivision near Christchurch.

Incase people are wondering ? – the unstained area is cemented into the ground – no doubt to stop the tables and seats from being moved!!

These are the bases of the tables – you can see how heavy and solid they are!! On top of these are tops which are 2m x 2m.

More Weka.A news next time!!

Have a safe and Happy Easter.

Weka.A Macrocarpa Planter Boxes

Well it is starting to get to that time of the year.
Not long till Christmas.

A great idea for the person who has everything – and haven’t we all got one of those in our lives!!!!

Planter Boxes? Made of Macrocarpa?

We have recently made up some for a garden in Akaroa to the clients specifications and he is delighted with them.

This photo shows the Planter Box for the potatoes – great as there is no a lot of bending and suitable for people of all ages!

This next photo shows two Planter Boxes built to fit in with the contours of the existing garden – makes life so much easier!!

This last photo shows the Weka.A trailer all loaded up with the Macrocarpa Planter Boxes ready to deliver to Christchurch.

Just a thought – Macrocarpa Planter Boxes – but you’ll have to be in quickly – Weka.A doesn’t hold a lot of stock – everything is made to the clients wants.

TWO NEW GARDEN SEATS FOR PRESTON DOWNS

Weka.A have just finished making two outdoor seats for a new subdivison just outside Christchurch called Preston Downs.

DSCF1399.jpg

This photo shows the seats on the Weka.A trailor ready to be delivered to Preston Downs.

I was most amused as one of my friends made the comment that the seats appeared to be very high!! and that she didn’t think she would be able to sit on them!!

What she didn’t realise was that the macrocarpa seats have long legs so that they can be cemented into the ground – no doubt to stop people removing them!!

I also explained that you don’t stain the legs that are going to be buried under the ground.Just in case she was wondering!!!!
