A stunning end to the DIY season as Easter fades and the daylight dwindles with so many warm and wonderous installations of hardwoods and railway sleepers submitted to Interlink Ltd for the chance to win rustic half wine barrels.
A winning entry from Malcolm & Wendy have proven what can be achieved through vision and recycled natural materials like A – Grade rustic hardwood sleepers.
Malcolm & Wendy write:
“We purchased 2 pallets of sleepers from Matthew and he was great to deal as usual.
They we delivered to our front lawn on time where we had a design in mind to build gabion sleeper walls. Our landscaper worked with us to dig and set the hardwood sleepers in place and we filled them with Ashley grey river boulders. Wendy, my wife added the Teddington boulder stream wave to great effect and we have been enjoying our outdoor lounge on several evenings. Many people comment on how impressive it looks.
Thanks, Malcolm & Wendy”

UK Oak utilised by Annette & Gary“The off cuts were used and one ended up the gate stop pictured with a repurposed brass handle and four rubber feet fitted. We also used a resin to bind the wood for stability as the off-cut had character due to cracks and was short, we finished in a clear polyurethane. We cut all the sleepers with a chainsaw and skilsaw.
Very happy with the sleepers and arrived as described and quickly, great communication and follow up.”
Cosy spaces with warm AA – Grade quality railway sleepers at Alfriston Primary School.
“This is ‘The Hug’ built by a parent for Alfriston primary School in South Auckland, from your hardwood sleepers.
It is the first thing that you see when walking through the schools front gate and symbolises a welcome, individuality and strength.
It also signifies the areas history of flax production which was transported to the Manukau Harbour via railway.
We love our Hug, we hope you do too. “
