Oak Biplane Bench
This was an unusual request - A company chairman was retiring so as a keen pilot his colleagues commissioned this leaving gift. It is a garden bench but obviously not a regular common garden bench but a Bi-plane complete with wings, prop, support struts and wire ties, not to mention the tail rudder and wheels. It was made in American Oak with a sapele prop, stainless steel metalwork. All the timber parts were oil finished. We even made a tailored waterproof canvas cover for the winter.
All in all a fantastic and fun project, and I know the recipient was absolutely thrilled when it was unveiled. It is now taking pride of place in his garden.
