Spotted Gum Bespoke Joinery

Salvage Group supplied bespoke Spotted Gum Stair Treads and Stair Case materials to this residential project in Melbourne. The kiln dried Spotted Gum was laminated and joined, and then dark stained, before having 3 coats of high gloss lacquer applied.

Matching pieces to clad and box the steel stair case spine were included, and then the stair case was built on site and secured to the glass framing, to create a striking and functional feature to the home.

We supplied genuine Queensland Spotted Gum to this project, which was further kiln dried after pre-milling, an added benefit to the project for our Client. Email us at to create your bespoke project.

Balgowlah, Sydney, NSW

This project, commissioned by a kitchen manufacturer for their residential project Client, called for our beautiful 250 year old Recycled French Oak beams, sourced directly from France.

A monster, 2.0m x 2.0m island kitchen bench top, and then later in the project, the Client requested a 2.5m x 600mm office desk top, complete with bespoke cable hole. Both bench tops were cut to our standard 40mm finished thickness, and softened beautifully with a 3mm pencil round on each edge and corner. [Read more…]

Professional Office Cairns

Salvage Group supplied a professional services office in Cairns with this recently sourced pack of Recycled Blackbutt, which was salvaged from a former car servicing garage in Toowoomba, Queensland, the first car servicing garage built in that city. Based on the age of the original building, these beams have been seasoning in situ at the garage for over 85 years.

The original beams were 300mm x 300mm in size. The Client requested they be brought back to 200mm x 200mm, and simply dressed with a very small bevelled edge. Underneath the main beams is a clever shadow line, created by a recessed plank made from the leftover materials after reduction in size at the Mill. This offers a cool, dark line of delineation between the floor covering and the first horizontal line of beams.

CUB Headquarters, Melbourne

Salvage Group supplied the CUB Headquarters at Southbank, in Melbourne, some amazing Recycled Spotted Gum, in rough sawn, bespoke produced profile, pre oiled internal feature cladding.

We actually supplied this project in 2 parcels. The original order was installed as a feature entry wall in the Foyer at CUB. The Client was so impressed, they asked for more material for the Main Reception, and the main feature downstairs was given an upgrade with the world famous CUB logo routed into the Spotted Gum, and re-installed.

Bespoke French Oak Doors

This bespoke French Door Set was designed by our Client, with input from the Team at Salvage, and Mark at Colonial Restorations, and a local ironmonger. It was created from our current parcel of 325 year old Recycled French Oak, sourced from a former granary in southern France. Tempered glass was used to create strength and security, and cleverly discreet insulation to buffer between the glass panels and the steel feature grills. The steel grills were finished in antique black with silver, and include unique pyramid-shaped steel feature pieces.
The French Door Set was framed completely in Recycled French Oak, and delivered as a ready-to-install set. Stained to the Client’s wishes and sealed with hard wax oils, it is a world one-off. For your own one-in-the-world architectural feature project, email us today at  .
