Swamp Matai Dining Table
The owners of a sandhill lifestyle property near Levin discovered that deep under the hollows of their rolling sandhills, were Matai and Totara logs which had been buried for thousands of years. Using large hydraulic diggers, they extracted the logs and had them milled into large planks. Once the planks were dry enough to use, they began looking for someone to turn their planks into a dining table.
The table legs are short slabs, each with two live edges, giving the appearance of being held up by a "tree" in each corner.
Swamp Totara Bedroom Suite
From the same sandy swamp, Ancient Totara logs were dug up, milled and stacked to dry for several years. In due course, another member of the family wanted the Totara planks turned into a bedroom suite, consisting of two large dressers, two bedside cabinets and a large slab headboard.
The finished Totara slab dresser in pride of place.
Up-cycled Oak Island Bench
This bench of American White Oak started life as a workbench in the Auckland Museum. It was 10 feet / 3 meters long by 4 foot / 1.2 meters deep. It was pure utilitarian, never on show. During an expansion and remodelling of the museum some years ago, the bench changed hands and found its way into some rough storage for several years.
