The original Iron Throne might have been forged at the order of Aegon the Conqueror, but this version has been forged with hundreds of man and woman hours at the house of The Deckstore.
This incredible piece of workmanship was not forged by ironmongers or even carpenters – just a dedicated crew of marine suppliers and manufacturers working together for SeaFM’s The Power of Pallets Auction and Cocktail Party.
The Deckstore store manager Tom Hogben said the crew of about six worked on the standout replica iron throne from Game of Thrones made from pallets, over many weekends for about three months.
“We really did it as a team-building exercise, to be honest, but we are stoked with how well it’s come together,” Mr Hogben said.
“The girl in our team who came up with the idea is pretty into Game of Thrones as you can probably tell, but we’ve all gotten into it,” he said. Two staff in particular have put a huge amount of time into completing the project – Jardene Wiseman and Jodi Sharpe.
While the crew who put the piece together might not be ironmongers or carpenters, the workmanship in the piece is evident, including the fact they used dowel to bring individual pieces of timber together.
“We think it’s for a great cause so we’re really excited to be involved,” Mr Hogben said.
SeaFM’s The Power of Pallets Auction and Cocktail party on October 29 is a fundraiser for the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation.
Foundation fundraising co-ordinator Nicole Gibson said the quality of workmanship and creativity in the Iron Chair replica was extraordinary.
“We are amazed to see how hard these individuals and teams are working together on making a difference to health outcomes in the Far North,” Ms Gibson said.
Funds raised from SeaFM’s The Power of Pallets Auction and Cocktail Party this year will be going towards cancer services in Far North Queensland. Every cent donated to the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation stays local and goes to its intended cause.
