Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock.

One of our current displays showcases the work of local resident, Robert Yarroll.

One of Robert’s hobbies is the manufacturing of clock housings, using repurposed natural timbers which he sources from old furniture and other wooden items discarded by local residents during Council clean-up days.

Robert is very aware that, no matter the age or condition of a piece of used timber, with a bit of effort it can often be transformed into something new and useful.  The age and variety of timbers he has found for repurposing are amazing. 

He is a member of the City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed (Harry’s Shed), where he creates these wooden clock housings. He was recently presented with the “2022 Shedder of the Year” award in recognition of his work in saving timber from going to landfill and using his finds to create something that would not be out of place in the most modern of homes.

These clocks and instruments are beautiful works of art so why not drop by our museum to see for yourselves?
