DIY made easy with Ashwood- Expert advice from start to finish
IF you have an unusually-shaped corner that needs a cupboard, or a creative idea for a piece of furniture but don’t know where to start, you’ll need an expert.
Qualified cabinetmaker Nic Riggs owns Ashwood Timber on Kayleigh Drive at Maroochydore and is always happy to help. “Our motto is: You think it, we make it,” Nic explains.”I’ve had customers come in with a page from a magazine with a DIY building project that they want to build, and other who just come in with an idea or a simple sketch on paper.
“We can cut the pieces to size which people can then assemble at home, or we can make it for them. “It just depends on their level of ability and how much they want to do themselves.” Nic said some people like to paint or stain their own pieces, while others wanted them completely finished. “We can advise on what will and won’t work. Sometimes people have great ideas, but timber may not be the best product for them- and we’ll be honest,” he said. “People also have different budgets and needs, so we can advise them on what material is best- whether it’s solid timber for a high-end piece, or MDF and plywood for budget projects.”
Nic said one of his favourite pieces was a timber display coffee table that he made specially for his wife which has a pull-out drawer that can be filled with shells, photos, ornaments or whatever you like. “Because I’m a timber lover, I love using solid timber and another favourite we made was a Red Carabeen bar with a two-pac satin finish,” Nic said.
Pictured also is a custom-built MDF storage unit designed for a bedroom. It has slide-out drawers and a hinged lid to hide away all those little bits and pieces neatly. “Taking this concept of adding storage further, we also do vehicle fit-outs for tradies and sales reps. We’ve fitted 4WDs, station wagons, utes and vans.”
