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.
We received this great piece of feedback from Max Harriman who was the Silver Gilt Winner at this year's Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show in Tatton Park 2018. Max created the garden "Calm in Chaos" using richly textured planting in muted shades and curvaceous wooden features to make a serene space, ideal for contemplation and to escape the stresses of urban living. Max asked us to create a bench to act as a resting point, inviting the visitor to pause a while in order to experience the tranquillity of the garden. The garden was entered into the Young Designer Garden section and won silver medal.

Dating back to the 1230's, Criccieth Castle in North Wales was built by Llywelyn the Great and was a native stronghold until English forces took it in 1283. Today Criccieth Castle is a wonderful tourist attraction and includes exhibits and information on Welsh castles as well as the Anglo-Norman writer Gerald of Wales. The castle also features a fabulous view of Tremadog Bay, a large inlet of Cardigan Bay, defined by the north Cambrian Coast and the Llŷn Peninsula of north Wales.
