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,
