Burr Horse Chestnut log ready for drying

We have recently acquired this stunning Burr Horse Chestnut (Conker) log, which we have been working hard to prepare for kiln drying.

As we cut deeper into the log, you're presented with spalting, ripples and wonderful clusters of burr against areas that are creamy white and streaks of light and dark brown heartwood. You will also see from the photos, that there are some interesting inclusions, which we think would make for beautiful furniture making, such as table tops.

The boards will be a wonderful addition to our new Timber Shop, so be sure to keep an eye on our social channels for an update on when they've dried.
