Another 'play' today with an oak log felled last August - my trusty (42 year old) chainsaw had the odd issue but nothing insurmountable.  5 planks was the end result (and some sawdust) and I decided to put them through my new planer thicknesser (even more sawdust / chips etc) before I let them season.  My thinking for this is that they are destined for 'rustic' garden furniture, so any warping as they season wont matter as they are already planed smooth.  I figure I'd lose less board by planing them now rather than after they've seasoned when I might lose more due to cupping etc.  They are now stickered and stacked on my (flat) garage floor - no space in my woodshed at the moment.  They are about 7.5 ft long and up to 1ft wide - milled at 1.5" and planed down till they were near enough mark free but not totally.  Destined to be my garden bench / seat / table etc etc

Nothing much new to report on the milling front, got stuck in to a 820 wide WRC for some external tables.

One will be for home, the long one on the back of the vehicle was for a client and one other sold of the trio.

Bit of windblown chestnut into a bit of fence. Chainsaw, Alaskan, angle grinder with flap disk, handful of coach screws.

Working with a Woodmizer mill again today. Beech, Ash and Oak. I don't remember where most of it came from but the Oak was from this job 3 months ago.

Not milling as such, but made use of some of the wrc, new outside table ive been hassled about for a while and part one of two benches for it.

The table legs are from Ebay, sufficient for the task just about but not as sturdy as I was hoping / expecting 🤷‍♂️

Bench stands where expensive, does anybody have any other sources of comparable options?

Yes it's Keith. Nice guy, can certainly run his woodmizer effectively! Do you know him?

Again, my apologies for another picture, but managed to mill the last 820mm wrc this morning and made use of last couple of boards from a smaller tree.

So now have a set of wrc dining benches and table.
