Home Living : October 6th 2009
8 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, October 6, 2009 Just wild about our hardwoods Wildwood Design's Peter Crutchfield says his dining tables are so tough family members will enjoy them for generations. Mr Crutchfield, pictured with son Zane at a table made from a one- piece slab of river red gum, said Australian hardwoods needed to be tough to survive our harsh natural elements, such as drought and fire. ''They are also interesting objects of art -- Mother Nature's art,'' Mr Crutchfield says. ''No table is the same. They all have different features -- sap veins, swirling grain patterns, bird's eyes and colours. ''For our one-piece slabs, or two- piece slab tables, we hand-sand where the bark edge was so it is smooth to touch, but we keep a slightly wavy edge. ''It looks unbelievable in a contemporary dining room." Mr Crutchfield is always on the hunt for unusual pieces of sustainable and recycled timber for his designs, and makes regular trips to Western Australia, Queensland, Victoria and the NSW south and north coasts. As well as one-off table designs, Wildwood Designs makes sideboards, drawers, chairs, consoles, coffee tables, entertainment units, mirrors, bookshelves and bedroom suites. They use timber such as blackbutt, spotted gum, jarrah and red gum. Wildwood Designs also has a special projects section for installations like wall units.
