Very Chunky 1.4m Reclaimed Teak Bench …
The design of this is centred around the ‘Yokes’ of an Ox-Cart …
Yokes are the specially crafted part that allows the cart to be attached to the ox. They’re intricately carved making them aesthetically perfect for use in a bench at the end of their working life on the cart itself.
The ultimate example of reclaimed teak furniture …
Other pieces of the ox-cart are reconditioned for use in other parts of the bench and you can see remnants of previous use all over the bench – the old, hand cut mortice-holes on the seating area, for example.
The teak is finished with a light resin that gives it the wonderful reddish-brown lustre …
It also ensures the longevity of the timber for outdoor use, particularly when you consider that it is jointed with hand-cut, mortice and tenon further reinforced with teak dowels for added strength and to preserve the integrity of the teak itself.
The cross-bar of the yoke adds an ornate touch to the otherwise rustic feel of the whole thing.
The legs alone are a massive 11cm square with a sturdy bottom-stretcher to give added strength to the whole.
Each one is totally bespoke and antique in nature …
Practically speaking the reclaimed teak still has the dense, oily qualities familiar to this timber giving it natural protection against the elements all year round. The fact it’s used by local people in their ox-carts demonstrates the hard-wearing capabilities perfectly.
It is also environmentally friendly – reclaimed teak reduces the amount of trees being harvested direct from the forest which is a positive reaction to environmental concerns.
We advise you think carefully about where to put it as, once in place, the sheer weight of the thing makes it a job to move.

Solid Sturdy Bench Review by jones the steam

I don't normally write reviews but I am very impressed with this garden bench. I have been looking for ages for something a bit different that wouldn't get blown over in bad weather. It is large, chunky & looks great on our garden bank. Was delivered 2 days after we bought it on bank holiday Monday for a very reasonable price, excellent product, excellent service. We have had gale force winds for the last 2 days & it's still upright ! (Posted on 25/05/2013)
