    Help with MEMORIAL BENCH please.

    I'm looking to buy a memorial bench / seat. I have seen a couple I like but wondered if anyone here has any suggestions. At first I was told I should ONLY get Oak but it seems to me that you can get decent Teak ones too. Or if anyone knows of any slightly diifererent benches I'd be happy to look at those too. It will be going next to a Cricket pitch in a village as the person we are remembering loved cricket and was an umpire at the club. Any suggestions apprciated. Would like to spend up to £400.

    Where is it going? a paved area or out on the boundary?

    If paved area i would go for teak, it will do the job. for on the boundary i would go with oak, but a bespoke bench you can get made at a local craftmans. but tbh any treated wook should be ok if the bench has heft to it. i prefer bespoke ones that are made with thick pits of wood rather than the thinner pieces.

    I think we are going to fix it to concrete on the boundary.

    i would look around some local furniture makers, i think thats what my club have done, and as a result we have some nice benches on the boundary, really solid log cabin esque.

    Please please make sure its concreated in or bolted down as I had my nan and grandads one stolen from the cementry Nasty people out there! Hope you find one you like xx

    What a lovely idea.

    I hope you get the bench you feel happy with x x x
