Tony and Jason had an extremely productive and labour intensive day on Monday. After sourcing a recently felled 200-year-old native Scot's elm tree, the job fell to them to slice the timber, ready for drying in our kiln. With a circumference of more than 4 metres, it required the use of one of the largest available chain saw mills, along with some hard work and determination.
Thank you Tony and Jason for helping this feeble photographer climb on and off the forklift safely for the 'aerial shots' (sorry about the squeaks of terror, and I hope the circulation in Jason's hand has now returned to normal). Once the boards are kiln dried and planed, we'll update our blog with some more pictures for you.
Our YouTube page has a series of four short videos of the slicing of the elm, for those interested, just follow the link below:
