There are benches and there are ‘Super Benches’. Handmade in Wales from locally sourced softwood, this armless, rustic park bench is heavy duty and extra strong.

Left untreated, the timber has a gorgeous natural colour and combined with a chunky design, offers a rustic feel with echoes of the coast, which lies only a few miles from the sawmill.

Description

Feel good, buy British. Handmade in Wales – Softwood Super Strong Park Bench.

There are benches and there are ‘Super Benches’. Handmade in Wales from locally sourced softwood, this rustic park bench is heavy duty and extra strong.

Rattan And Teak is proud to be a promoter of quality, British craftsmanship and to be a supporter of small businesses that make the most of the resources that are local to them. So we are delighted to be able to include this beautiful, Softwood Super Strong Park Bench, in our catalogue.

Designed and handmade in Ceredigion in West Wales this chunky, solid and durable outdoor bench has been made from locally sourced, quality softwood, including Larch and Douglas Fir, which is known for being durable, rot resistant, flexible and for having an excellent strength to weight ratio. The timber is cut in the saw mill and dried naturally before being hand-carved and sanded smooth by an expert woodworker. Left untreated, the timber retains its gorgeous natural colour and along with the chunky design, which makes use of 55mm to 60mm thick pieces of timber, this helps to create a rustic feel which has echoes of the coast, which lies only a few miles from the sawmill.

Available in 3 sizes and suitable for commercial or domestic use

This Softwood Super Strong Park Bench is available in 3 different sizes:

150cm – 3 seater

180cm – 4 Seater

210cm – 5 Seater

The classic, armless, park bench design means this outdoor seat is strong, sturdy and stable while also having a lovely handmade, individual, rustic feel. The generous sized backrest and bench seat are both made from one piece of timber that has been cleverly hand-cut in a pleasing wavy line down the middle, forming two slats. With no armrests to take up some of the length, the seating feels plentiful and spacious.

While the leg struts are straight and solid, the edges of the seat and backrest are gently angled and softly curving, reflecting the natural shapes of the softwood from which they are made, rather than being angular, as in many mass manufactured picnic benches. 

Being handmade from a natural product, each bench has its own unique shapes and textures. The bench is made from green, air dried timber so will age and crack naturally, adding character, and will turn to a beautful silver grey as it grows old. If you do wish to treat the timber, the manufacturer recommends using Osmo UV-protection oil.

Are you a commercial buyer? Do you need additional seating?

If you would like more seating, then this quality, handmade park bench is also available with arms in the same three size options. We also sell matching Picnic Tables.

Delivery Information

We offer Free Delivery On Most Orders to most parts of England, Wales.

That’s right, for 75% of the UK population, delivery will cost Nothing!  Nought!  Nil!  Nada!  Zero!  Zilch!  Zip!  😉 

Most of our rivals use cheap palletised delivery services which will only deliver to your front door.  Unlike Rattan and Teak, they do not offer expert assembly, furniture installation and rubbish disposal services. 

If you purchase from them, it will be your responsibility to assemble your furniture, move/install it into its final place and to dispose of the cardboard / pallet waste.  This can require specialist tools, can be physical challenging and can also be time consuming.

Many of Rattan and Teaks products are very heavy and/or require specialist assembly.  We offer 3 levels of optional Assembly and Installation Service, Gold, Silver and Bronze which reflect the time and effort required to assembly your furniture.Rattan and Teak Delivery Service

If you see  the “two man delivery logo” in the product details we recommend you add the optional Assembly and Installation Service to the shopping cart.

We normally deliver goods between the hours of 7am and 6pm and will deliver 7 days a week to ensure we meet customers’ expectations. However we know how frustrating it is to be waiting in all day wondering when your delivery will arrive so we will contact you the day before delivery to give you an approximate arrival time.

Our drivers will contact you again on the day of delivery if there is a significant change to the arrival time.

Please see the Delivery Details page for full details of the Postcode Exclusion Zones, Postcode Additional Delivery Charge Zones and our delivery service.
