The Classic Range of Memorial Benches
Classic benches are heavyweight, hand built and designed to
withstand the rigours of outdoor life. We favour prime grade oak because of its density, resistance to decay and of
course it's beautiful grain pattern.
Generous timber sections are used on all designs. Typically on a
hardwood bench, the seat and back slats can be rather slender, but because the seat slats are the parts of the
bench that receive the most wear and tear, we make them thick enough to last as long as the rails and legs. High
quality resin glue, as used in the boat building industry and stainless steel screws are used to secure chunky
mortice and tenon joints. Deep screw holes are then plugged with oak dowels and hand-shaved flush.
All of these details ensure many years of active service.
