More news from Phoenix Shed

Setting a New Benchmark


This is one of the latest projects and the finished benches are coming off the production line.  Nick redesigned the benches to fit with the timber from Northern Power Grid / Balfour Beatty.  The timber is heat pressure treated, so will last for many years to come.  We can supply the benches either plain, unpainted, or in a variety of Ronseal 5 year paint colours. Fully painted they are £115. Ring either Eddie on 07481 543881 or Chris on 07930 207537 for more details

planterTriple Deck Planter

Another of Nick’s designs, these planters can be made in single, double, or as this one is, triple deck. If you are short on garden space, then this could be the very thing for you.  Again, they are made of the same substantial timber as the benches.

Fully painted they are £125. Available for viewing at The Phoenix Shed Halifax, Nursery Lane, HX3 5SX

Sling me one of those


Chris has been busy making two catapults for a customer, whilst Dave had been repairing her pop group’s speakers.  Catapults are available for both target work, or fishing and as they are very individual price is on application.  In the photo the one on the left is for a 13 year old boy and the other is for a 48 year old boy. Ring Chris to enquire on 07930 207537.

3 legs better than two


How about one of these lovely and versatile tripod stands?  (Tennis balls and washing basket not provided). Keep your washing basket at a handy height to save bending down all the time and the bonus is that it also keeps it dry when the ground is wet. Made from heat pressure treated timber to last you many years to come. Ring Chris to enquire about these stands on 07930207537.
