Thor’s Hammer is a joinery, sawmill and recycled timber yard based in Griffith, Canberra. They recently commissioned me to draw three illustrations for their showroom. The illustrations were to be of a typical timber framed house, an old warehouse and a wharf. The drawings show a cut away section though the three different structures. This enabled the components of the structures to be clearly identified. This makes it easy for Thor’s customers to be directed to the illustrations if they are not sure of what part of the structure the timber is salvaged from.
If it is a post, a wharf pier or joist, the customer can see clearly what part of the structure the timber comes from. In addition, Thor asked if he could be in the drawings! No prizes for guessing who the person is in each illustration.
