IMO , anyone within 50 mls. should be peddiling their bike towarbs Nottingham now and get some of thoes branches.
That is a very generours gesture from the flat side of the forum , and although I cant avail of it I'm sure there are others that will .
The piece with the tape against it would be a very interesting piece ,as fron what I can see there may be a hole or nesting place on it which would open it's turning interests very much .

Thanks for showing

Chems,

Generally a woodturner will find good use for walnut, for the same reason others like to work with it.

Eugene, I think you were looking at Paul Chapman's walnut rather than Chems!

In reference to the piece of timber with the tape against it
this is what I had in mind regarding what could be tried .

I am never too sure if these pictures are being posted properly
so here goes.

I'd be great to get these branches moved so if people do want them for turning can you send a PM, just donations to the tool fund would be appreciated and that UKW's get some good wood at a steal. They'd have to be cut and collected from Northamptonshire, just off the M1 near Watford gap.

If anyones interested send me a PM.
