We manufacture bespoke outdoor garden furniture such as superbly hand crafted bespoke garden benches and patio tables, parish notice boards and urban street furniture, hardwood gazebos and cabins.
Whether you are interested in our standard range of garden benches or looking for a truly unique piece of outdoor furniture, Woodcraft UK can turn your project into reality. Nature provides the beautiful raw materials, Woodcraft UK provides the craftsmanship.
Woodcraft UK manufactures high quality, made to measure, luxury wooden garden furniture for home, patio, and garden.
From benches to bollards and planters, we produce solid, durable street furniture that complement any urban redevelopment and city refurbishment.
Parish noticeboards, picnic tables and park memorial benches, we produce classic solid furniture that blends in to any rural settings and public recreational areas.
Here at Woodcraft UK we have a variety of wood working machinery and tools that help us carve, drill and cut wood into the desired size and shape for all of the garden furniture we manufacture. Sometimes, however, we need something that has computer based precision and as such we decided to build our own CNC machine. CNC machining (computer numerical control) is a manufacturing process in which we can programme computer software to control the movement of wood shaping tools such as drills, sanders, lathes and routers. Not only does it give us the desired accuracy required for creating bespoke angles, curves and joints but it also cuts down on wastage, allowing us to get more pieces out of one section of timber - a saving we can pass on in our prices to our customers and to the environment.Last year we decided to build our own CNC machine and have been using it to great effect, engraving benches and shaping wooden components.
Work has begun on our bespoke wooden benches for Regents Park in London and the first bench of this order is completed. We built this style of wooden bench to their own specifications and is exclusive to Regents Park and therefore will be called The Regents Park.
We like to think that we understand our customers. Whether you're buying for your own private garden or for a public park, we're here to offer advice and a variety of options, as well as listen to exactly what you need, even if it's never been done before. So if you require a piece of outdoor wooden furniture that's incredibly specific and can't be found in the shops or online, look no further than Woodcraft UK. Bespoke wooden furniture is becoming increasingly popular as people realise that they don't have to settle for anything less than the perfect solution. Just because our York and Beverley ranges are incredibly popular, it doesn't mean they're right for you. Maybe you have a compact area that won't accommodate a regular sized bench, or you want a one-piece seating area that curves around a pond, or perhaps you have something totally unique in mind that will reflect the style of your business or organisation. Whatever you need, we're here to turn it into a reality.
This is very much work in progress but we thought we would share this post with you so far. This is a bespoke cabin for a new client. The specification is for pressure treated timber walls, hardwood door and window frame and a roof system of EPDM, which stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, and has a guaranteed life of 20 plus years. EPDM is a rubber based material and probably the most water resistant rubbers available and have excellent heat, ozone/weathering, and ageing resistance.
We found this wonderful picture (above) of one of our wooden benches on Beverley Westwood in East Yorkshire and we thought that it is the perfect time of year to share it with you. It is one of 38 benches we have over the years installed under the trust of Beverley Pasture Masters. This is the York bench and has been weathering for quite a few years now and while it could do with a little TLC, it is still going strong. It's been a great 2018 for us at Woodcraft with some really exciting projects under our belt. Here are some of the highlights.
Here at Woodcraft UK we often receive requests for tree seats and wrap around benches. Our tree seats act as wonderful memorial benches that are constructed around the circumference of a suitable tree allowing for multiple inscriptions. Due to individual requirements, the size of the tree and location, our tree seats are fully bespoke, however we can also adapt many of our wooden benches from our classic range such as the York bench, Mendip bench and Scarborough bench.
Michael Davidson has run Woodcraft UK since its inception in 1990. Many people assume that Michael۪'s previous career was along similar lines, or at least fitting vaguely within the furniture design or manufacturing sectors. In fact, the history of our company has its roots in something that couldn't be further removed: computer analysis. Back in the late 1980s, Michael was working on a contract that took him away from home. To keep himself busy, he decided to enrol on a woodwork course. The idea was that this would help him to switch off from his job for a while, but never would he have dreamed that it would result in a switch of career as well.
