salt and wood

Re use it or lose it


This largish wedge of timber was found along Yarra Bay. The unidentified species has a definite satin to it but seems to soft to have been a chock from a ship. More likely an off cut from work somewhere around the Bay or beyond. The front pegs and legs are all dowel found around the bay, cut to size and varnished or painted with a tin of gloss red enamel paint found in the street and add that certain ‘maritime petroleum exploration oil rig architectonic’. Despite drawing gentle ridicule from all observers this item has proved surprisingly useful for locating the cover of the playing CD. This may have been the tipping point for my wife’s comment  “this corner of the lounge room is looking like a 1970’s JB HiFi.” Despite my initial reaction it turned out this was not complimentary!
