Past Projects

Rod Murray has been involved with a lot of interesting projects over the years. Below are a few examples of past projects that required the creation of a solution to meet the customer's specific needs.

Due to this house's modern open planned architecture as well as its rural setting it required the introduction of natural timber furniture to soften and add warmth to the interior. This was achieved, in consultation with the owner and interior decorator by combining stainless steel with a light Black butt natural edge timber as well as glass and Jarrah.

Rod Murray’s tables are more than just tables they are works of art and will add value to any home. 


 

This client chose the slab from photos emailed to them. Rod Murray then handcrafted this solid River Redgum table. If you are ever in Perisher, enjoy a cold beer or fine wine on this table at the Man from Snowy River Hotel.


 


Hand made from an ancient Tallowood burl and Mallee stump.
This setting was shipped to the USA to be shown off and enjoyed by an executive and his family in their log home. All organized over the internet.

The old dead log from which this table top was milled was hundreds of years old.

This one piece natural edge River Redgum dining table with matching chairs looked like it belonged in this stunning house overlooking Sydney’s inner harbour


 

Surfsup in Iceland! ‘The owner of this luxury hotel in Iceland contacted me via email and asked if I could help on an ambitious project he had underway. He was creating a world pavilion in a new wing of the hotel and shipping in furniture from the four corners of the world and wanted authentic original yet quality Australian furniture and artwork for an Australian themed suite. We combined top grain cowhide leather with river red gum timber to achieve this. Part of the order was for a timber surfboard which we constructed out of spotted gum and River Redgum. Lucky it was for display only as it was that heavy that it probably would go straight to the bottom of the ocean!” - Rod
