Keep Me Post, Railway Sleeper #54
Keep Me Posts are functional art, that cherish the story of each piece of timber - stunning as art or functional, as door stops.
This post is unique, created using a piece of reclaimed jarrah used as a railway sleeper. Cleaning revealed deep erosion, possibly because it has been under water for some of its life.
The iron work is a pandrol clip - also traditionally used on the railway.
Material: Jarrah & railway iron
Dimensions: H 35 cm, width 10 cm, length 22 cm
- Weight: 6.2 kg
The timber is Australian Jarrah, a very dense and durable wood that is part of the Eucalyptus family.
Jarrah was imported and used along with other Australian hardwoods in late nineteenth century New Zealand for commercial and industrial construction.
The history of the timber has been retained by leaving any existing bolt holes and surface marks, while exposing and polishing the beautiful end grain.
Both the Jarrah and the old iron have been cleaned, sanded, and hand finished by applying a coating of natural beeswax.
Each Keep Me Post has a felt pad on the base to protect any surface you choose to put it on.
