Recording progress on a large wind-fall Beech tree a neighbour has kindly let me have.
Most of this will be chopped up for firewood for next winter, but hopefully some of it will become bowls, planks, spoons, stools or other stuff over the next year – plan is to update this post with progress as that happens…
Some pics of the early stages and first few cuts:
This attempt at a panoramic pic shows the size of the tree better, pity I cut off the top of the photo though 🙁
Most of the first day was spent clearing the branches and chopping off the small bits in preparation to get at the multiple trunk sections next time.
And some shots of the first few tractor loads brought home and added to the woodpile – still nice and green….
