Somehow it got to be 2019, how about that!!
Yes, it's been a while since we've posted here but our motto is "quality over quantity". (Questionable, but we're sticking to it!).
Whilst 2018 at Manual Arts DEpt. HQ yielded improved stock storage solutions and upgrades in workshop machinery (yay!), we're ringing in 2019 with a new product to add to our range.
We may live a few hours from the nearest beach these days, but that doesn't mean we don't love a bit of coastal enjoyment from time to time!
The newest addition to our range celebrates just that. The Longboard Serving Platter is crafted from our beloved Spotted Gum Australian hardwood and offers a cool and casual share platter experience.
Perfect for effortless entertaining when guests "drop in" (surfing pun intended).
One of the final stages to finishing our hardwood products is to brand them with our abbreviated name, M.A.DE.
This is done using a propane gas torch to heat the aluminium brand that we created ourselves. It only takes a few seconds.
It takes less than that to burn yourself if you're not paying attention when someone is taking your photo :)
