A quick following note regarding the recent SALT AND WOOD exhibition of selected work at HUT 24 Gallery at Addison Road. It was a great success with many ITEMs sold but far more importantly the meeting of many minds and discussions had with a variety of interesting people regarding design, up cycling, timber and more. Thanks to everyone at HUT 24 for your super support and great premises.

Following on from the exhibition some ITEMS will be available for purchase from the consignment section of ‘The Bower’ up cycling initiative at Addison Road and also records stands are on display in the shop window of Egg Records in Newtown.

Things have been HECTO but I will get more work on line as soon as I can.

I found this wonky old table top washed up on a Sydney beach. I think it is Maple? But with a little sanding a varnishing of selected faces an amazing transformation took place from the sun bleached out grey to this rich brown red. There was some remnant structure on the tabletop to generate ledges and legs but I ended up adding in some other timber I had found as well. I think I made 7 variations of this stand from this. Some examples shown here.

This one was commissioned for myself. I wanted some sort of stand to have next to my work computer so I didn’t have to look down to hardcopy drawings to reference notes etc while typing. It will be located next to the screen. Basically composed of a bit of scrap plywood, a little ledge of an old cabinet, a salvaged and restored hinge and some plywood chocks to allow screw depth. I cut the designed leg shape out, shaped the ledge and pen tray and spray painted the back and front as shown. I also located a little magnet couple in the swinging leg to hold it shut when carrying the unit around.

This one was commissioned for myself. I wanted some sort of home base for all the design paraphernalia at the end of the drawing table at work. It is custom made to fit across the end of the 1000mm deep desk and allow easy access to masking tape, pens and pencils, geo triangles, rolls of yellow paper etc. You can see the top shelf tips back so rolls of yellow paper will roll to the backboard. Under the main top shelf is a dowel rod that allows geometry templates to be shoved in floating over the pens etc.

Not an old yellow dog but an old table top with yellow legs.

 Unlike the classic 1956 Walt Disney family tragedy, the production of this ITEM has a happy ending. No need to get the gun Pa!

The tabletop was donated by a friend who hauled out from under his mums house. Unfortunately I don’t have a before picture. But it didn’t look like it does now! A curious timber and constructed form, its difficult to even guess at the true age and previous use? The legs as you can see are salvaged from another street found unit.
