The Dragon’s Lair Slab came from The Boar Tree, estimated to be ~200 years old
(from the diameter of the tree) which is growing on the near side of Hurdle Creek.
~Thirty years ago one limb broke off the tree leaving a small stub which formed the
snout of the Boar. The limb lay on the river flats and was subjected to, and
moved around by flood waters before being rescued in 2014.
It was then expertly milled to create uniquely shaped slabs ready to begin a new life
accentuating their true natural beauty in one-off pieces of bespoke furniture.

No two are alike, making each sustainably produced piece of furniture a truly unique,
one-off, with zero impact on the environment.
This stunning table has been lovingly hand tooled to realize the full potential of the beautiful
timber (and the client’s vision of a Birthday gift for her dragon loving daughter) by Artisan
Geoff Simpson who loves to create unique pieces filled with history, character and life.
The stand has been crafted from a beautiful red gum tree root, located on the far side of
Hurdle Creek, it’s natural cradle-like centre making the perfect Dragons Lair. The Gothic-style
footing is a re-purposed Wire Spinner circa 1970’s from Brown Brothers Milawa Vineyard.
