Take a seat, and remember....


I thought that I would take a look back this week, and visited a bench I made two years ago.
This was a commission for King Johns House in Romsey. This oak bench was made to compliment other benches in the garden and can still be seen there today.
 I made the components then took the relevant bits to a wood carver based in the old brewery site in Romsey to do the memorial carving. Then I assembled and finished it.
The oak, in this case, came from England and was not kiln dried as the bench was to live outside.
Two years on the bench has weathered down to a beautiful silver colour. It does not have any preservative on it, but the oak should last many years.
