Sitting on Sapele

Adam's finished sapele bench

Quay TImber customer Adam Davidson had a special request for our machinist Neville. He wanted to build a bench at a right angle for the garden with some dressed sapele. Sapele was a great choice for a garden bench as its'  eyecatching colour makes it stand out against any backdrop and it's beautiful grain means it looks great up close too. 

Adam came into the shop with a long template made from a folded out cardboard box, this provided the rough measurements he needed. With this Neville was able to cut and sand the hardwood to perfect specifications, rounding off the inner edge to make the bench comfortable as well as attractive. Here is a quick diagram of the materials coming together to make the bench.
