Solid timber sleeper benches in the traditional style for schools and courtyards. For the largest range of sleeper benches Melbourne has to offer call TK Tables.
A wooden sleeper bench made in the traditional style. We make our timber benches from a range of timber types including recycled railway sleepers. These are extremely heavy and care needs to be taken if you intent assembling this at home. We can provide these as kits for ease of transport with all brackets and holes pre drilled.
The sheer size of the timber attracts attention and a sleeper bench is a piece of outdoor furniture that will last a lifetime. We can cut and make these benches to any size and assemble them firmly together to prevent the seat slipping off or the bench getting the wobbles on uneven ground.
The new sleepers straight out of the mill are 200x100mm thick so they sit reasonably firmly on level ground, but if you have kids you might consider anchoring them into the ground for safety.
The heights can also vary to make them something to sit on or higher for a place to sit pots or ornaments.
Recycled railway sleepers also make a beautiful rustic bench and these are slightly larger in cross section, usually about 225x125mm. We can also obtain much larger cross sections but these are subject to availability and a lot more costly.
We will normally shave all the corners and remove any splinters to make these as child friendly as possible before delivery.
The standard height of the bench is 400mm for stand alone benches and 450mm for benches used as part of an outdoor table setting, but that too can be increased or reduced if required.
The sided versions have side posts 600mm high (ideal to rest a coffee cup on)
Anchored seats have an additional 300mm length added to the legs so they can be set into the ground. These heights and lengths can be changes if required.

|Don't be afraid to ask about really thick benches... They look great but they will take a little longer to source the timber from the mills|

* Please note that due to restrictions in Red Gum timber harvesting, 100mm thick red gum sleeper are in short supply and very rustic in character with vein holes, grub holes and cracking.
