Blake's industrial railway sleeper table

18 July 2015 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

A really original and unique industrial style table using dramatically weathered Jarah railway sleepers to support a one-off cast concrete table top.

A very impressive creation that combines and contrasts the rough, beaten finish of the reclaimed railway sleepers and rough edges of the cast concrete, with the polished concrete table top.

08 July 2015 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

Graham sent us impressive pictures of his new railway sleeper wall, and generously added these crumbs of comfort:
By the way, keep believing in Nottingham Forest; I’m a life-long Stoke City fan, and we’re having some time in the sun at the moment;  It comes around to all of us eventually!
Hmmm... It's all very well for them. I can't remember the sun shining for decades!

Confessions of an addict! My arms have returned to their original length!

A & K sent some helpful quotes having finished their wonderful railway sleeper water feature: "It started with 3 sleepers, and ended up being 25. We just got carried away and loved the whole experience of working with railway sleepers." "My arms have now returned to their original length." "We just needed tubes to roll / move the sleepers around." A wonderful water feature with railway sleepers that is beautifully designed, and is....

There is an urban myth that states that it's dangerous to cut European railway sleepers because they have bullets embeddied in them. Apparently, so they say, the RAF and Luftwaffe sprayed railway tracks with machine gun fire, for target practice, during WW2. However Richard Watson has exposed this myth with simple logic: "Even if you .....
