You could not choose a better day for a trip out to Kendal, situated within the beautiful area of the Lake District. Yesterday, Tony and Jason paid a visit to a local man who had a huge oak log that needed to be moved. They turned up in the morning, armed with an axe, chainsaw and the British Hardwoods truck, all ready for the job.

The log measures at 4 metres long by 1.2 metres wide (at its widest part). It took quite a bit of work to try and plank the log meticulously to 4" thick, with the chainsaw having its own mind during the task - at one point sawing from 4" to about 6" thick - but we will be re-milling one of the planks to ensure it's down to 4" thick.

They finished with 5 solid planks which will be air dried for at least a year within the British Hardwoods factory before finishing off in the kiln. The planks look impressive, solid and clean.
