Camping Toby Chair in Pickled Oak
The Toby Chair mini - perfect for a compact garden or balcony chair or around a fire pit on a camping trip. Despite their smaller stature, these chairs are still wonderfully comfortable.
As with the Toby Chair original, every single piece is hand cut, drilled & finished to order.
Made from beautiful, sustainably sourced FSC European Oak, every single piece is individually inspected, cut, drilled & finished. Oak is a much sought after hardwood; strong, heavy & durable. Our Pickled Oak range is inspired by a centuries-old scientific principle - Iron reacts with the tannin on the wood, and creates a beautiful black shade within the wood itself.
To achieve this finish, we firstly wash the Oak in a specially prepared Oak bark powder tea, and then using a solution of iron and vinegar, we wash the Oak several times until it becomes a consistent and beautiful jet black.
In addition to three coats of a high quality protective teak oil we use two further coats of a high-grade UV protective oil, to help to preserve the colour when used outside. We can recommend a suitable oil with UV protection for maintenance of your Pickled Oak chairs - application is straightforward.
Caring for Toby Chairs
The Pickled Oak Toby Chairs will quite happily withstand a quick rain shower, but we recommend that you bring the chairs inside if bad weather is forecast. To keep your chair in perfect condition, store it in a dry place and occasionally show it some love with a top up of protective oil - you can now buy teak oil in spray form, making it super quick and easy to coat.
All our prices include shipping to mainland UK. If you're making an enquiry from elsewhere, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We make our chairs to order, so please allow three weeks for delivery. We'll keep you updated with the order as it progresses.
Please note, the Camping chair is also great for kids but parents should approach with caution as they can tip forward when younger children try to climb on them. So technically, we don’t recommend it for kids under the ages of 8.
