Custom Furniture From Recycled Marrickville Footbridge
Posted on April 16 2018
The original timber walking bridge that crossed from The Marrickville Golf Club across Cooks River to Beaman Park in Earlwood was dismantled in April 2016. With a new bridge in its place Wildwood Designs is proud to have secured most of the old hardwood timber on this bridge. We're very excited to have lots of this incredible old hardwood to be creative and make fabulous recycled custom furniture with.
The deconstruction task was a mammoth undertaking with a crane on a barge being anchored into the river to balance the weight of the timber. Australian hardwoods are the toughest and heaviest in the world (and we think the best!). And acquiring pre-loved hardwood in this quantity is incredible - we're looking forward to the projects ahead.
