Reclaimed Oak Log Basket is part of our ‘Cross’ range of living room furniture. This log rack is made from 6mm thick laser cut aluminium and reclaimed French oak. Perfectly proportioned to hold and display fire wood. The oak is finished in our own recipe 100% natural and organic beeswax polish. The aluminium legs are powder coated in a rich gloss charcoal grey. This log holder sits at 30cm high x 55cm long by 46cm deep. As with all reclaimed timber, each piece is unique and will differ slightly form the picture. It’s a real privilege to work with timber with such an amazing story and a real joy to give it new meaning and a new life. We love this log holder and we hope you do too.
How Its Made
The oak used in the Reclaimed Oak Log Basket originally served as flooring and walls of French Railway Wagons hauling goods for the SNCF (Société nationale des chemins de fer français). These wagons are up to 80years old and are nearly all now decommissioned and replaced with less romantic steel versions. When we first get our hands on the Oak boards they are coated with decades of soot from the old steam trains that hauled them. Hiding under that soot lays an incredible timber full of characterful burls, knots and cracks. Time has allowed the soot to seep into the cracks and holes beautifully highlighting them in jet black.
