Project: Oak Bench Commission
Date: November 2012
It is often a refreshing change to undertake jobs that vary from tree surgery operations. In November 2012 we were asked to make a bench out of a large section of oak stem that the client had kept. The bench was to be placed in the client’s garden once created.
The section of oak was approximately 10ft long and 3.5ft in diameter at its widest. It is estimated that the tree was 250 years old. The tree had to be removed from a building site to make way for a new development and so it was rewarding to create something that would allow the tree to be enjoyed for a number of years to come.
There were unfortunately a couple of cuts that had already been made on the section when the tree was originally removed. Once the design had been agreed we began to create the bench using chainsaws.
When the shape of the bench had been created we smoothed all the edges and rounded off the seat and arms to complete the work.
