LocationStoke Newington, N16, LondonMaterialsSapele Hardwood with deck oilJob DetailsWe built these hardwood deck boxes for a customer who wanted some seating on their outdoor terrace on the top of a mansion block. They are constructed using a hardwood called Sapele and have been finished with a yacht deck oil which should mean they last as long as possible in the outdoor weather. The boxes are made using a 'tongue and groove' construction method, which means individual pieces of wood can expand and contract in varying temperature and humidity without causing stress to the overall box. The interiors have ply boxes dropped inside for storage areas.
