Rustic benches and woodwork
Interested in having a bench made & installed? contact us
***Please note, this is
only a small part of what we do and we are not a large, commercial operation.
Everything we do is hand made and therefore we do not have the capacity for large orders but for small
individual orders of carefully crafted, distinctive items***
(Guide price range of benches shown here between £100 & £800 + VAT, designed, created & installed)
***We now have the capacity
to courier benches (bench tops) up to 5' in length. Installation is only offered
in Ayrshire and surrounding counties unless part of a larger project***
East Ayrshire Woodlands
have been producing a number of rustic benches for schools and community woodlands
throughout the region, many of which perfectly compliment our range of willow domes and willow features.
All the wood we use is
sourced locally and is using timber that has been acquired from the result of
woodland management, particulary as a result of age and weakness or as a result of storm damage.
Our teams are heavily involved
in felling, transportation and installation of the finished features.
We then hand craft each bench, avoiding any further use of power tools if possible, though can router an
appropriate message or phrase in to further enhance the final look of the bench. We can design, source,
hand craft, finish with oil and install all benches.
A summary of recently installed benches is shown below.
Loudoun Hill, Irvine Valley
The large picnic bench
table top was produced by a local craftsman, whilst East Ayrshire Woodlands
the two smaller benches, the viewpoint boundary and did all the installation work.

Fenwick Primary School
The Fenwick Primary bench
was the finishing touch to their new willow structures and was sited in the
hidden part behind the dome
The large 'U' shaped rustic
bench we installed in the forest school clearing at Craufurdland Estate is to
the largest feature we have produced. Extremely robust, it is fast settling in to its new surroundings, with the
large diameter bases and hazel pegging weathering nicely.

New Interpretation Panel Surrounds
Interested in having an
interpretation panel created & installed? contact
us or visit our
communities page for further information & interpretation examples.
This frame was created
from two hardwood slices joined together, routered out and the panel set in
further framed with beading. All fixing were finished with hazel pegs & a lower routered message sign added.
The Jubilee panel at Loudoun
Hill was carefully selected to have the same profile as the hill itself and
was from a single slice.
It was finished with hazel pegs & beading. All the timber was sourced from our essential woodland management.
