Oxford Wood Recycling

Oxford Wood Recycling is a social enterprise providing an environmentally friendly alternative to a skip for producers of wood waste in Oxfordshire, West Buckinghamshire and most of Berkshire. We specialise in recovering reusable materials from the waste collected, which provide local DIYers and woodworking enthusiasts with a sustainable source of low cost timber. See the Wood Shop album to get an idea of the materials we can offer. For waste wood producers, we can provide you with a comprehensive waste audit detailing the destination of all of your waste, which you may be required to have to comply with recent legislation governing the disposal of waste. For wood users, we have an ever changing array of both ordinary and unusual materials. From raised beds to garden sheds, floorboards to firewood, bookshelves to storage boxes or workshops to wine racks. If you can make it from wood our low cost, high quality supplies are sure to fit the bill.

Set of six oak dining chairs (five chairs and one armchair). Originally manufactured by James Phillips & Sons Ltd, Union St, Bristol.

Seat cushion covers have seen better days but general integrity of cushion is good. Chairs need a little TLC and most joints are solid.

Full set for £100 or £20 each.

Collection (free) or delivery (to be agreed) within 35 mile radius of Abingdon.

Recommend seeing them in store.
