It always amazes me how wonderful scaffold boards are for building chunky rustic furniture. I was recently asked if I could make a set of benches and a table to seat six for a great Asian fusion restaurant Temple Mama Cirencester
They already have some wonderful old furniture including an old rectory table and a long oak bench so my brief was to try to match the style and if possible the colour so that the additional seating fitted in with the current décor.
I started with four three metre lengths of scaffolding boards which are made from the highest quality slow grown spruce (Whitewood), so before any work began I had to dye the wood using an dark Jacobean wood stain. Once everything had been built and sanded down I then finished the table and benches with a couple of coats of dark oak stain.
I will post further photos of them in situ once I have delivered them later today
