Derek Ridgley and Kerry Penrose
Bushwood.com.au specialises in one-off art sculptural pieces and custom furniture up-cycling ‘Waste wood’. Established in the early 90’s, originally Bushwood Timbers was a successful on-site portable milling service until illness prevented further operation in 2001.
Timber was salvaged from private sources or with Forests NSW under a salvage license. Of the most spectacular pieces created from salvaged timber was a table made from Pink Bloodwood from Newry State Forest. It was calculated there was just sufficient timber in the log to make a table before it was cut.
Derek not only crafts and designs special pieces but can complete design drawings & project manage home and smaller engineering projects including small wooden boat repairs and maintenance.
