Deck Table, 2020

The Deck Table design is inspired by architectural framing particularly a timber deck with exposed framing and cantilevered members with tapered ends. Utilising Australian hardwood framing that has been hidden behind plaster in Australian buildings for around 100 years the Deck Table offers a new and celebrated life for decking boards.

Suitable for clients seeking unique handmade furniture and those interested in creating furniture from the materials removed from their homes during renovations as an interesting nod to the history of the building.
