Visting Christchurch

Timber storage

Last week I flew to Christchurch to visit a timber furniture manufacturer. I am working on an interior job where we are getting several pieces of custom made furniture - so along with the project manager, we visited Davies Furniture to finalise details and check out their facility. It was great!
We had lunch at C1 Espresso where they deliver sliders to your table via a pneumatic tube at 100km/hr. We ordered a meal especially to see this in action - very clever indeed.

This is what a timber manufacture factory looks like.
