Shattered Dreams Leaf Table by Malcolm Bird

Shattered Dreams Leaf Table  2018

Australian Red Cedar and Australian Ancient Redgum

Approx 1400mm wide x 2500mm long x 800mm high

The basis of this table is an Australian Red Cedar slab that had some rotten bits in it. These were cut out using a water jet cutting process and replaced with the same shape Australian Ancient Redgum leaf shapes. This is marrying two really incompatable timbers; one so soft and another so hard. The shattered name reflects that the slab was run over by a forklift and shattered at one end. I painstakingly reconstructed like a jigsaw puzzle and the join lines add vein like character lines.
