Sue's rustic shelving with very old tropical hardwood railway sleepers

Here are some photos of the railway sleeper shelves in progress.  My builder had to fix 2 together for the amp and front speaker. He says they should survive almost anything!

These ancient hardwood railway sleepers are as weathered and worn as you can get. They've had more than sixty or seventy years of snow, rain, wind and sun, not to mention endless trains and carriages running over them. Some people might judge them as too battered, too far gone and fit only for the fire. But Sue has seen in their crumbly exterior a unique weathered piece of beautiful timber that deserves pride of place in her home. Rustic shelving that openly declares its character and age. Wonderful.
