Features/Benefits
The Oxford is a comfortable bench with contoured seat and back.

Weighing in at 24kg this is a middleweight bench made from teak wood giving strength and durability.

The seat slats run side to side in the traditional manner, its a classic design with the twist of a curved top rail. This curve is designed with our CNC engraving in mind allowing for 2 lines of 1 inch engraving. Engraving is also possible on the straight seat rail.

The bench is made of FSC certified plantation teak providing you with a long lasting, stable, strong but "soft to the touch" bench sourced from responsibly managed forests. Teak doesn't need to be treated, it ages beautifully to a silver colour.

The scrolled arms further enhance the classic design, this combined with the softness of the teak, often results in an irresistible urge to stroke the arms.

The leg profile is 55x55mm giving a stable foundation and structure to the bench.

The Oxford doesn't have any wood lamination. Lamination is used in the industry to reduce costs, it involves glueing pieces of wood together, in places like back leg at the angle or the top rail. We have seen examples of wood delaminating over time and avoid it on our own bench designs.

The main mortise and tenon joints are manufactured so that when the dowel is driven into place, the joint is pulled tight. With a properly constructed joint assembled in this manner, glueing is not required.

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

Engraving
This bench can accommodate 2 lines of engraving on the top rail. The maximum number of carved letters is 40 characters on the first line and 40 characters on the second line (including spaces). The seat rail can also take 2 lines of 1 inch high engraving. The V carved letters are typically 0.3inch/8mm 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.
