Joking aside, has anyone ever tested out the myth about laying a length of roundwood in running water for a bit, then seeing if it seasons quicker when put under cover?

Hi all,

Just spotted this thread, obviously not paying attention over Christmas.

We do marquee hire work in the summer months and are in the process of scaling down that side of the business. We use some of the marquees for log storage/ processing and other coppice related work. The attached pics are of of a 6m wide x 6m long Hocker P6 (blue roof) and a P3.66, 3.66m (12') wide x 9m long (white in pic this ones been up for at least 6 years) and they are of course temporary structures.

Any way we've got some for sale in P3.66 (up to 90m total) and P9 (9m span, 4 of at 9m x 15m, or similar up to 60m total), they'll all be white pvc covers and be fully enclosable as per the3.66 in the pic. If you want to check out the spec. for these UK Marquee manufacturer, clearspan marquees & temporary stores for sale, commercial quality, Up to 25m wide - Hoecker Structures (UK) Ltd is the manufacturers website, look under party tents. So if anybody's interested drop me an email: [email protected] . we can deliver and erect as part of the deal.

Apologies mods if this shouldn't be on this bit of the forum.

Ernie.

That is to remove sap, to prevent staining in summer felled Sycamore, not sure it changes drying time any.

I can get ibc cages £8 a piece but with inner in £35 so its a bit of an expensive option.

 

Wish you were closer! Cheapest I can source is £35 also but I have to buy the inners with it :-( can't find any cages only locally

 

So I've decided on some heras fencing, each Bay should hold 20 odd cubes

Make sure you triple clip the sides & also tension at least 3 bits of rope around them, we have tried it first time this year and its pushing the side way out! if it wasnt for the rope they would of gone pop :lol:
