Iron Maiden Tree
The Iron Maiden Tree was located on the near bank of Hurdle Creek & was named
because of the extraordinary hardness of its timber. Its origins are shrouded in mystery,
where it grew, when it came down, & therefore the actual age of the timber is inestimable.
The tree 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 some amazing and uniquely
shaped slabs ready to begin a new life accentuating their true natural beauty in one-off pieces
of bespoke furniture.
Once in a lifetime comes a log with this wonderfully unique shape which has produced three
incredible slabs with footings.
Potential one-off creations for these three slabs include: Table Legs – tall or cut down for short
& use the rest of the slab as the table top.
Potential one-off creations for the other slabs include: Bar, Side/Entrance/Occassional/Coffee Table,
Bench Seat’s, Long Bar or Side/Entrance Table, Cut & join to increase diameter for wider table top.
The natural grains and astonishing range of colours, due to age and exposure to the elements
are exceptional. No two are alike, making each slab a potential truly unique, one-off, sustainably
produced piece of furniture, with zero impact on the environment.
