    Making of the steam knobs

    These photos show the steam knobs during production. Everything I make is hand made including the cutting of the wood, finishing through to the fitting of the bolts etc

    Coloured Laminated Hardwood Barista Tampers

    Here are several colourful laminated tamper designs that I have started turning in limited batches. Most of them have sold out, however I still have several blanks in various colour combinations.

    They are made from cross laminated layers of hardwoods, known as lamellas which are glued together with the grain alternating at 90 degree angles for each layer. They are then bonded under heat and pressure with durable, moisture-resistant adhesives. Aside from being visually appealing, cross-laminating layers of wood veneer improves the structural properties of wood by distributing along-the-grain strength of wood in both directions which makes each handle extremely durable.

    Cheers

    Leon

    Some more Custom Hardwood Parts for Breville Coffee machines

    We also make handmade Australian hardwood portafilter handles for Breville coffee machines. Breville glues the portafilter handle to the head rather than using a screw on bolt which makes them tricky to accommodate replacement handles. We can provide ready made Breville portafilters with hardwood handles. Conversely, some customers like to post in their own for us to fit the handles.

    This handle I based on the La Pavoni style and is handmade using Tasmanian Blackwood in a natural oil and beeswax finish.

    Cheers
    Leon

    Real Old Growth Jarrah Barista Tamper

    Here is a rustic tamper with a lot of character that I made this morning from a new batch of old growth Jarrah I managed to talk my supplier into parting with. He is well into his eighties and found the wood fallen behind some shelves in his workshop and remembers misplacing it in the sixties :-). I love the figured grain and the depth of the hues when the wood catches the light which you don't find in the younger woods.

    Smile Handmade Slayer Style Portafilters

    Here is another end of June special!. These handmade Slayer handles are made from my last stock of imported exotic hard-woods and are all fitted with M12 bolts which fit the majority of 58mm portafilters. They are silky smooth having been soaked over time in Danish, Teak and Linseed oil and finally waxed.

    I have only 1 left in teak Teak and 6 in Pink Mahogany. These handles retail at $75.00 and are on sale for $65.00!

    Handmade process

    Here is an overview of some of the stages involved in hand making a Profitec Steam Handle. I work with a traditional approach with limited machinery and do not use electronic cutters or duplicators. Thus, every piece is unique and individual. The last stage of smoothing and functioning on the machine I will post shortly :-)

    Here is an update to these steam valves handles with the edges contoured into the same shape as the original black plastic handles. This set is currently soaking in a mixture of natural oils and resin.

    I am currently taking orders for Profitec Pro 700 parts using a variety of Australian Hardwood's so get in early :-)

    Discounts available for Coffee Snobs members!

    a couple more pictures of a LaMarzocco GS3 handle. I have made the wooden sample larger which makes for a nice solid robust handle with a nice fit in the hand.

    This is a shot of the lever handle for the Profitec Pro 800. I have made a lot fatter than the original so it has a better grip in the hand.
