We understand the dilemma - you love the look of the product, but the finish isn't quite the one you would choose. Maybe you want an appearance which matches other timber items in your house that are finished with a particular oil/stain/wax. Whilst we do offer a range of different shades of danish oil, we know that these won't cater for everyone. So what to do if you fall in to this camp?
Many of you may be wondering how much weight this board can hold, especially if you are going to use this for a shelf. The scaffold board at full length can hold up to 150KG spread evenly, so a few books shouldn't be an issue.
It's been a little while since I wrote a blog about customer projects, and I didn't realise quite how many awesome photos had been sent in during this time! I've had to short list them just to make sure that this post isn't overly long, so please keep on reading for a selection of the best customer project from the past couple of months...
The creative juices are flowing here and we have not one, not two, but three new products to add to our range of furniture, all made from our wonderful reclaimed scaffold boards! We've got two new benches (one for indoors, one for outdoors), and a new outdoor table too.
Scaffold boards are perfect for this sort of use. They're sturdy enough to take the weight of the soil that they're holding, and the long lengths mean you can easily create raised beds at a really functional size. Unlike many railway sleepers, of which reclaimed ones in particular are full of all sorts of nasties such are creosote or tar, scaffold boards are usually complately untreated (ours are always untreated).
We're excited to add a new "Suspense" Shelf Bracket to our range of Brackets. What we particularly like about this bracket is that it differs somewhat from our usual rustic, heavy duty style, and is instead a sleek, modern type of bracket which will fit in all sorts of design settings, from Scandi to mid-century or retro.
