Miller Slabs


In the late 1950’s/early 1960’s teams of Timber Millers toured the floodplains of Oxley in

North East Victoria, milling Red Gum timber into 4 x 4 fence posts for sale in Melbourne.

In those days Red Gum was valued more for its durability and toughness, rather than its

exceptional beauty. Consequently the Timber Millers left behind many slabs of Red Gum

that they could mill no further fence posts from.


These slabs lay on the river flats and were subjected to, and moved around by flood waters

before being rescued in 2014 to begin a new life accentuating their true natural beauty in

unique pieces of bespoke furniture.


The natural grains and astonishing range of colours, due to age and exposure to the elements

are exceptional. No two are alike, making each sustainably produced piece of furniture a truly

unique, one-off, with zero impact on the environment.   


Potential one-off creations include: Bar/Bench/Counter tops, Side/Entrance/Hall/Occasional tables,

Bench seats.
