Always good when the client is happy to see the timber from a felled tree being given a new purpose rather than just being chopped up for logs 👍

yp - hes building a bench around his outdoor firepit and the planning some work tops for his kitchen. The job has been planned since march and hes sent tonne of emails and calls about how to sort things out and project ideas.  He was a bit supprised / overwhelmed by how much work is involved with milling, storing, drying, moving the wood then all the work that is then required to make a final product to use indoors but has been really excited from day one about the project as a whole.

I often get overwhelmed with the amount of work involved in milling 😆
