During the redevelopment of the Uniting Church in Fitzroy, Victoria, Nullarbor Timber salvaged timbers that have been part of the church structure since 1871. That's over a century of use. A week's hard toil lifting the Baltic flooring and Red Gum floor joist meant we could re-machine the seasoned timber and re-expose its magnificent characteristics and colours by shaving off the external shell.
These timbers are primed and ready for re-use for 50mm Recycled Redgum Tables and Benchtops that hold a century of ordained Melbourne history in its core.
You can see the transformation in the photos below. Note that the church has now been renovated and re-purposed as a contemporary open living space. The timber used in the new design is not from Nullarbor, but we love the use of timber to display how effective the new design is, using man made materials and natural timber products to capture the cathedral beauty of the historic building.
