I have just finished, a pair of oak benches for the labyrinth at St.Andrews. The Quaker group in St.Andrews decided to celebrate their 50th anniversary with the creation of a labyrinth next to the museum. On reaching the centre there were to be two simple benches for reflection after walking the path. The benches are in local oak and are gently curing so as to fit the central space. On one there is a quotation from George Fox, an early Quaker. The letter cutting was done by a local craftsman.
“Be still and cool thy own mind and spirit”
“George Fox 1658”
The photos show the benches before installing and oiling and they look rather tall, they have been built with long legs so they can be securely fixed into the ground.
I am able to take commissions for making outdoor benches from quite simple designs through to elegant seats with arms and backs. Prices start from £500, please get in touch if you are interested in talking through an idea. They make great memorials for people and events.
