A lovely box from a fellow UKworkshoper arrived yesterday, got round to opening it today and there are 3 lovely boards, Cherry, Walnut and Oak, thinking of using the Walnut and Oak to make a box for a friend and possibly use the cherry to make a bowl blank unless anyone has any better suggestions

A sad day, 4 semi mature silver birch had to be felled to make way for a new classroom building that is being build in the summer, a lack of storage space and not much time to process it meant I could only justify keeping the trunks, 2 of the trees had short fat stems that are about 6 foot long, the other 2 were closer to 10 feet so I had the tree surgeon cut them in half, he was going g to split them all down the middle but the first one had something in the wood that killed his saw chain. The shape of some will produce some very nice live edge bowls in a few years. They're all sealed with PVA, now I've just got to try somewhere to move them where the academy aren't gonna complain about them.

Just had some logs dropped off this morning.
Diameter of the larger ones is 24" (600mm) approx.
Nothing too fancy, just Monterey pine (Radiata Pine) https://www.wood-database.com/radiata-pine/
I'll be getting a second load later today

It might end up being construction lumber but it was a good price, even with a tip for the driver.

Looks nice 👌
I've spent my last few days sorting through some of the stuff I've had in the garden for a while, amazing how quick time passes, realised whilst sorting it that the mountain ash is more then 3yrs old now, one piece has the most amazing spalting, hope I can keep it in one piece, the rest is just as gorgeous.
Here's a few pieces, the last 2 pics are of an ash that was felled across the road in January last year, the stack is waiting to be cut, the stuff in the shed was left whole if there were no cracks, those with cracks had the chainsaw put through the biggest crack, resealed and stacked, there's about 6 inches of space behind them all to allow air flow.
