The "Cardiff" bench is the best quality softwood bench we have found. This is a middleweight bench at 28kg with good sized sections of Redwood softwood giving it strength. It has been pressure treated for durability.

Wide and thick top rail is perfect to wood engraving with large deep cut lettering.

The seat slats run side to side in the traditional manner. The seat is dished for comfort.

The back is angled back for comfort. The back slats are straight, the top rail has a curved top.

The shaped arms give a prestige look.

The bench is made of Redwood softwood and has been pressure treated to provide protection from rot and insect attack so it can be left outside all year round.

The Cardiff does not have any wood lamination, all components are cut from a single sawn log. Lamination can look unsightly and there is always the risk of the joint coming apart, its best to buy benches without lamination if your budget allows.

The main bench assemblies are fixed with flat head hex/allen furniture connector bolts and screws.

When you receive the bench, it will be fully assembled.

This bench can accommodate 2 lines of engraving on the top rail. The maximum number of carved letters is 20 characters on line 1 and 55 characters on line 2 (including spaces).

The V carved letters are typically 0.2inch/6mm  deep, depending on the font type and size. This depth of carving takes a lot of machining time but the result is an inscription which is crisp, clear and readable

Choose how many lines of engraving you require, then type the inscription above the "Add to cart" button. Finally, select your font type from the drop down list and add it to cart. 

We offer free design proof, please choose this option if you require one. 

We aim to make the letters as large as possible, for example if you choose one line instead of three, then the letter height is likely to be larger.

You can further personalise your bench by adding the following: 

  • 2d clipart carving to wood,  
  • logo carving to wood.
