Our Brush With Fame

Following a request from ATB Trophies to repair the bases of some football trophies Andrew & Steve put their woodwork & wood polishing skills to work. Little did they know the trophies belonged to Steve Ella, the "Zip Zip Man" & were major awards presented to him while playing for Parramatta Rugby League Club.

The trophies had been stored under a house for many years & the bases had begun to rot, but with a lot of fine cabinet work & elbow grease parts have been repaired or replaced. Now with the figures remounted on their stands & the engraved plates back in place they have been returned to their proud owner.
