In the little gaps between large scale oak framing work, there's still smaller projects coming out of the workshop in Falmouth, Cornwall. I had long wanted to make a garden bench along these designs, from large clean slabs of green oak with wedged through tenons. When an old family friend recently married, I had my opportunity... Best wishes Jon and Viki.

The first of my 2 oak framing projects on the Roseland, Cornwall over the autumn, this linkway between old cottage and new extension features wedged dove-tailed through tenons in the collars for added strength. Difficult to raise by hand but it still all went together nicely in 2 days. As always, I look forward to going back when its all finished and getting better photos.
