Our oak stave love seat is made from oak barrel staves. The "stave" part of the barrel refers to the thin, vertical pieces of wood of the wine barrel. We use the staves to make up the seat and leg frame. Oak is a hardwood known for its durability and resistance to rot and insects.

In order for the wood to be bent into the original barrel shape the ‘Cooper’ heats the wooden stave, the heat can cause drying and ‘blistering’ of the wood, which might only appear after purchase.

All items made from redundant oak barrels will have red wine stains ingrained in the wood. This will make some of the oak a burgundy or pink colour. If the item is left outdoors it will have to be sanded and resealed from time to time. If it is not sanded and resealed the wood will grey. Some staves naturally blister and crack. The bankie is not intended as an outdoor piece of furniture.

Material: Reclaimed Oak Barrel staves sealed with ProNature indoor sealer

Size: Approx 360mm deep x 1000mm long x 500mm high 

Disclaimer: Cracks, imperfections, wear & colour variations form part of wooden items’ character. Timber movement will occur as this is a natural product. We cannot be held responsible for any damage to furniture due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control and due to dramatic changes in relative humidity. It is to be expected that with exposure and weather conditions, cracking and movement may occur.

Items are hand finished and made with reclaimed & off-cut wood, therefore pieces may vary in size and thickness. Oak barrels vary in size and thickness, this will affect stave lengths which can range from 900mm to 1m
