This is the Story shelf. It was designed to display an eclectic selection of precious objects collected over a lifetime of travel and adventure. The piece is primarily made from a collection of Blackwood slabs milled locally as well as some special bits of figured Red Gum I had collected over the years.
Right from the start this client knew she wanted a “live edge” (a piece of timber with the original edge of the outside of the tree retained). Often live edge pieces get pretty rustic and chunky but I was keen for it to fit with a more refined aesthetic. I ended up removing the bark from the slab and carefully following the grain with a spokeshave to keep the essence of the tree without the bark and soft cambium.
These slabs of Blackwood have a spectacular iridescence which is hard to show in photos.
