Another table of the same design as previous different materials though.

The frame is reclaimed Oregon from the old Sackville ferry which crosses the mighty Hawkesbury River West of Sydney and the top is reclaimed Spalted Maple that has the most amazing colours and tactile look. The end grain looks very much like marble.

Osmo finishes.

The table is to be sold at our next exhibition with proceeds going to the club.

The top is really nice BUT the leg set is outstanding. Great design.

G’day David

I lived at Sackville and our family owned the ferry masters house that the old Colo Shire Council rented off us for him.
Many times I had to drive the ferry because one of the fairy masters used to get drunk and stop the ferry i/2 way across, so i would either swim or row out to it and operate it until a rep from the council came and took over.
In summer all the local blokes would race the ferry across and usually beat it to the other side. When it flooded, the ferry master and his family would move everything into our large shed until it went down.
You have certainly bought back old memories.

That is certainly a beautiful table and thank you for posting it.

Regards
Ray
