salt and wood

Re use it or lose it


This was an old hardwood drawer (as you can see in the before picture) found in the street. Circa 1930’s ? There is timber from at least 8 different trees in the restored unit including Eucalyptus and some boating timbers. The removable bottom shelf and the chocks it sits on is restored flotsam off two different boats. The middle shelf is a section of Eucalyptus flooring pulled out of a skip. The bottom shelf comes away to reveal a storage space in the base. The facade was laid out to emphasise the horizontal elements including using the flooring tongue detail. 10 horizontal elements in all if you include the shelf spaces. All the nicks and nail holes are filled with red wax before sealing.
