What is the finial choice of Wooden Obelisks?
We offer three finial choices on our bespoke bird tables which are the ball, acorn or unique.
What is a Unique Finial?
As well as offering the traditional Ball or Acorn final we also offer the choice of a unique finial.
Each unique finial is uniquely designed and handcrafted by our in-house carpenters using our top of the range lathes. No unique finial is exactly the same so if you choose a unique finial, our carpenters will choose a design based on their own design flare at the time.
Are Wooden Obelisks secured into the ground?
Due to the weight of the timber used to handcraft each of our bespoke wooden obelisks, securing down the wooden obelisks is not necessary.

What size Wooden Obelisk would you recommend?
The size of the wooden obelisk depends on the climbing plant and the height you would like your climbing plants to grow.
For centrepiece displays, we would recommend a larger obelisk to allow the climbing plant to take full advantage of the obelisk height.

How are Wooden Obelisks painted?
