Turning the tables on unsustainable furniture


In the Brisbane suburb of Yeerongpilly flat-pack furniture is being re-imagined.  Here, joiner Ben McGreevy recently launched furniture company Oak and Hide, using Australian Hoop Pine to craft furniture that will be ingeniously flat-packed for delivery but guaranteed to out-live its cheaper flat-packed rivals by decades. McGreevy has abolished the need for allan keys, dowels, fasteners and bolts (which are often discarded anyway). A desktop Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine has allowed McGreevy to design and create timber joinery with pinpoint accuracy including many complicated joints that are not possible to achieve by hand.
