In 2013 Mentone Tenpin Bowls in Melbourne\'s South closed its doors after 50 years. As sad as this made Alley Cat, they focused on the silver lining and took the opportunity to salvage the bowling lane timber and reclaim its innate beauty by giving it a new life as quality furniture.
The amount of happiness these bowling lanes provided and shared in since the 1960’s is immeasurable, bringing people together to celebrate birthdays, to bond over friendly tournaments and no doubt helped as the ice breaker for plenty of first dates.
Alley Cat Furniture use it\'s knowledge of design and traditional woodworking techniques to revitalize and reshape this unique timber into beautifully crafted pieces of furniture. In this way we hope the soul of this timber can continue bringing joy to people for generations to come.
