Here at sleeperbenches.co.uk, we transform new european oak sleepers into beautiful hand crafted oak benches & tables. All our oak is sourced from FSC suistainably managed forests. Every oak bench & table is custom made to order to a very high standard. Due to oak being a natural product, every product is unique.
We offer all of our products in a natural oak finish or a dark oak stain. We also offer a letter carving service too, so if you would like names or a message inscribed into your bench, that can be done too.

Gardens look better with an oak sleeper garden bench
Because our products are made with green oak, they are likely to come with some splits in them and they will develop splits and cracks as they dry out and weather. This is what gives oak its character. Whilst we always use the best faces of the Oak beams to make our products, they will still weather as the Oak dries out. Also, because the oak is green, it is possible that some of the tannin oils make be washed out of the oak and cause staining on the ground beneath.
All our oak benches are made using housing joints to secure the legs into the seat, which are then glued and screwed. Oak plugs are then used to hide the screws and the benches are sanded and treated with two coats of Manns UV Decking Oil to finish the job.
WE NOW OFFER ALL OUR PRODUCTS IN A DARK OAK FINISH TOO
All of this means these benches are built to last!
If you are buying our oak benches to be used in busy areas such as schools or public places, we recommend that you choose the longer legged option so they can be secured into the ground for safety as well as security reasons.

It is worth noting that due to the nature of oak, there may be slight imperfections in the timber itself but this is part of any natural timbers character.
Sleeperbenches.co.uk is based in Colchester in Essex. All our garden benches and tables are handmade in 10-20 working days (subject to the availability of good quality timber and workload) and can be delivered to most places in the mainland UK. Collection is also available upon request.

Noel just built me the most amazing dinning table.
Just over a quarter of a Ton of solid oak which will certainly be a talking point in years to come. Already looks like an organic part of the house.
