Slicing Native Rippled Ash with the Mebor Band Saw

The Mebor Band Saw has been put to excellent use this week, slicing the most beautiful Native Rippled Ash boards from logs sustainably sourced from The Malverns. Once sliced the boards revealed a stunning dark Olive heartwood with distinctive outer ripples.

With the timber in its raw state, the photos don't really do justice to these stunning boards at the moment. However, once the timber has been dried in our Vacuum kiln and then sanded to a smooth finish, the ripples will produce a stunning three dimensional figure.

The Mebor Band Saw made short work of slicing through this large Native Ash Log, with the new blade moving like a knife through butter.
