sycamore plank bench or side table

rustic vintage style bench shelf   £195 part of a range of milled plank furniture we are making, for use in the home or “insidey outside” places, like conservatories or verandahs etc. What we’ve tried to do is mix old and new, as well as natural curves with clean modern lines. It’s an approach used much in the seventies, in Scandinavian furniture, especially. So it feels a bit retro too. We like it lots. It could sit in a porch with wellies and dog leads on, yet would look great in a modern lounge with a widescreen on it, and media units below. We can make it to measure, with various add-ons and modifications, too. No reason why it can’t be used in the garden,  but with some care; some of these pieces are in less durable timbers, such as this example, in sycamore. Too many rainstorms and days of baking heat would reduce its life somewhat. We’ll be doing some in oak and chestnut for those situations. These sussex grown sycamore planks have been debarked and sanded nice and smooth but without removing the sawmarks from the milling process. The result is a nice mix of the lush and the rugged; the grain shines through, as do the natural ripple burrs that are a classic feature of sycamore. We finish it with an oil to enhance the grain and protect against spillages. dimensions: 139cm x 29cm x 47cm high sycamore bench shelf   £195 free delivery to hastings, bexhill and eastbourne; £30 to brighton, canterbury, haywrds heath, tunbridge wells etc. Delivery to London and further afield by trusted courier, estimate £40    ...
