Favourite Things Friday






Some time ago in some bushland south of Cairns my husband and his good mate were cutting timber from fallen trees.  They found a 'huge' fallen tree and were able to cut quite an amount into slabs using a 5ft chain saw mill.  Billy kept a large slab  and some pieces that could be turned into legs.  The wood was then left in a shed to season.


30 years later it was brought out to see daylight and a friend of ours has turned it into this lovely table  The timber is Brown Beech.  It has the look of Red Cedar but is a harder wood.


It is my favourite this week, isn't it awesome!  Big enough for all of us and more AND just the right height for my crafting....

  3. Gorgeous. I love wood. But wood you've found yourself and shaped into something like this? It's like a fairy tale.Good on Billy for thinking of the legs, too. He's a useful one to have around, that one.

  5. That's one lovely table Jenni. And to think it was created from wood you had a personal relationship with makes it even more special. Some people certainly have talent.

  6. What a beautiful table! Your story reminds me of my father who was also a woodworker. He sawed up a native walnut tree, seasoned it in the garage, and made beautiful furniture and cabinetry from it throughout my childhood. There is nothing like having something so lovely done completely by the people in your life.
