Carvers at the Ready!

Carvers at the Ready!

It's that time of the year when we dive into creativity with our much-anticipated Staff Power Carving Competition.

This annual event inspires our team to unleash their woodworking skills, carving up projects around a theme.

This year's theme, 'Recycled,' adds an eco-conscious twist to celebrate our recent B Corp certification.

The rules are simple: create a power carving project inspired by the theme and incorporate at least one Arbortech tool. We then transform our Perth courtyard into a pop-up art haven. Laughter, live music from the Arbortech band, delicious food, and great prizes set the stage for a fun-filled afternoon with family, colleagues, and friends.

Co-founder Kevin Inkster notes, "The knowledge gained from using our tools is invaluable, not to mention the joy of discovering one's creative side."

This year marks a momentous milestone as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Staff Power Carving Competition. What an achievement! In the spirit of creativity, camaraderie, and craftsmanship, we look forward to many more years of carving excellence at Arbortech.
