Every one is unique » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Some native timbers are so rare that Wildwood Designs can only make one table a year from the hard-to-find wood, and that's if they are lucky. Wildwood Designs' owner Peter Crutchfield says the pictured table is a never-to-be-repeated masterpiece. ''It is made from highly featured kiln-dried queensland maple and we could only get enough to make one table this year,'' he said. ''The unusual texture in this timber has been highlighted by the way it has been specially milled. ''The cut actually accentuates a natural blonde flame pattern that you can see flickering in the timber. ''Then our professional lacquer finish highlights and seals what I consider Mother Nature's artistic magic. It is a visual delight to dine at this table.'' He says they gave the table a curved end that they call a duck-tail end and the leg design is a Y-shaped refectory base made from the same highly featured Queensland maple. Wildwood Designs specialises in making furniture mainly using native Australian hardwoods. The range includes dining tables, chairs, bedroom suites, buffets, coffee tables, desks, bookcases and custom projects.
