Old Bridge sees new life
Wildwood Designs at 334 Victoria Road Gladesville have a new range of dining tables made from old Marrickville Bridge timber that Pete Crutchfield sourced last year.
“The bridge was not far from our house in the inner west,” says Juliet the other half of Wildwood Designs.
“Pete spent nearly a week with the dismantling team taking off the timber plank by plank,” she said.
“The bridge is made of beautiful old hardwood and it used to cross the Cooks River between Marrickville and Earlwood.
“We have lots of photos of the old bridge if any client would like to see where the wood came from.”
“We have also done plaques for clients with information on the 100 year old bridge that have been screwed onto the table base.”
“For the most recent pieces we have finished them in a new furniture seal that looks raw but is in fact protecting the timber.
“The timber in these tables is a lovely natural grey but is smooth to touch. It is worth coming in to have a look.”
