Railway Sleepers have been used for centuries to provide a firm base for railway lines to fasten to. Nowadays their popularity is with landscapers builders and furniture makers as something that is solid, long lasting and full of character. You can expect many decades of use from them whether outside in the garden, or inside above your fireplace or windows.
It would be impossible to describe in detail all the things that you could create with railway sleepers. Suffice it to say that they are versatile, easy to use, and blend in effectively.
Whilst reclaimed oak sleepers have many good uses they should not be used in those applications or areas where there may be frequent skin contact. For furtherdetails on this and other restrictions please refer to EU Commission Directive 2001/90/EC.In such cases consider using untreated oak as an alternative.
