Through the window I spotted the round timber lorry edging into the yard.

Wait until you see what was on this lorry… very exciting!  This is the first of about 10 lorries that are on their way into the yard with some stunning logs.

Graham and Grant have just started sticking them but they aren’t going fast enough for me to show you the evidence now. They do have a camera with them to photograph as they work so I’m looking forward to seeing what’s on the menu…

It was good (and I use this term loosely) for re-sawing air dried Oak beams, or for square edging the unwieldy 100mm or 120mm French waney edge Oak boards..  or for any other unusual job that no other machine could handle… like the quartering of a Sweet Chestnut log for an art project at the V&A!
