    Been doing a Stu this afternoon.

    __________
    A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking the owner of my local wood supplies along to point out items that could possibly be put to more worthy a cause than firewood. It was duly arranged that as and when time permitted they would be felled and moved in my direction.
    These two samples of coloured Ash are but the start of the exercise, how the guy lifted them out of the truck I don't know, I could only roll them, there is another 4mtrs or so of the same to come. As can be seen the tree has had a long standing crack down its whole length for some time.

    This wood is from the standing stump left when the top shattered in storms last year, hopefully when dried it will produce the same sort of colouring as that wood.

    Yes the wait whilst it looses moisture is hard to accept at times, the last lot is still not all dry enough, but I do have an advantage over Stu in that my surroundings are a little more agreeable while I wait.


    The woodland on the horizon is the source.

    You are doing a "ME" but on a much grander scale for sure!

    Nice get, can't wait to see what you get out of them!
