To Buy See: GD STORE > FOR GARDEN
This Patio Set was commissioned for Mr an Mrs Muir, Ellon after thy visited our Open Studios exhibition in September 2010. We were asked to make a new table to their own dimensions and complete four Patio Chairs to accompany it. As we already had one chair made and a table, they were able to test them for comfort.
The timber was purchased from H & A Lewis, Boyndlie, by Fraserburgh and from Piercy Hardwoods in Auchterless, Nr Turriff. Both supplied from stock at Forglen Estate, Turriff, Aberdeenshire. As we know our suppliers well we know we are getting well managed timber.
