    Details

    Rustic 1.6m Reclaimed Ox-Cart Bench …

    Fully Assembled

    Teak Oil – Just Say NO

    How they're made

    Ox Cart yokes feature prominently in the design

    The ‘Yokes’ of the Ox-Cart are reconditioned and used to stunning effect here …

    Yokes are the local term for the intricately crafted mechanism that straddles the shoulders of the two ox’, allowing them to pull the cart without damaging it or them.

    They have been lovingly reconditioned here and used for the base-design of this weighty and rustic outdoor bench.

    It’s well over half a metre deep and has a total length of just over two metres …

    This makes lying down and stretching out on the thing very easy indeed.

    The chunky nature of the timber gives it robust stability so think carefully about where to put it – once in place it’s not the easiest piece of furniture to move.

    The cross-bar of the Yoke is used cleverly as a top rail which adds a little ornate touch to the otherwise rustic feel of the bench as a whole.

    100% unique each and every time …

    They are often referred to as 20th Century Antiques in the Western world today.

    Other pieces of the Yoke are used to decorative effect in the back-piece and the previous uses of the reclaimed timber are evident everywhere in the roughly asymmetrical square holes and redundant, pre-cut mortice’s that run along the front of the seating section.

    The individual pieces of reconditioned teak are held together with hand-cut mortice and tenon joints further reinforced by teak dowels to give a solid structure and preserve the integrity of the timber.

    A light resin is sprayed on for the finish giving it that eye-catching, reddish-brown lustre …

    And also making it even more suitable for outdoor use.

    A sturdy bottom-stretcher is fixed in place underneath to further prevent that annoying wobble over time.

    The dense, oily nature is still heavily present in reclaimed teak so it is still naturally protected against the elements all year round.

    Reclaimed Teak Furniture originates, in part, as a reaction to environmental concerns around de-forestation overseas – it is a great way to reduce the amount of timber harvested directly from the forest.

      This is our second purchase of these wonderfully unique benches. They may be expensive but are well worth the cost - they are built to last, solid and heavy - and are always a talking point with visitors to the garden. (Posted on 28/03/2016)
