Exterior Furniture

This is a bit of a catch-all category for anything wooden that spends its life outdoors. This includes sheds, garden-offices and summerhouses (double-glazed, felt-roofed, insulated and with wood-burner, if required). I also make steps, decks, pergolas, coal-bunkers, dog-kennels, mirrors, chicken arks, arbours, benches and screens... whatever you need. I also create timber sculptures and out-door paintings: yes, paintings you can hang on your garden wall. As far as possible I work with reclaimed materials and use solvent-free finishes. I hope you find the pictures inspiring.

"I had an image in my mind's eye of the ideal garden seat but it wasn't nearly as beautiful as the finished thing. Sourcing driftwood from the beach Ben skilfully created something totally unique and magical, drawing from his experience as a sculptor and artist. I felt rather worried about leaving it outside where it might be stolen - but he sorted that too by constructing an elegant system to keep it firmly bolted down. I really love it."
