A few sticks of Euc

I have looked at the swing mills and various other permutations, of all the mills the only one I fancy either buying or building is the double cut bandmill. So much time wasted running the head back to the start each time with conventional mills . God only knows how they track the bands

 

 

 

 

That's one of the advantages of swingmills too. I'm surprised you're not interested. Unless it's waney edged slabs you want, you still need to cut twice apart from you have to move the wood for the resaw with a bandmill too. I assumed you'd be wanting to cut beams for landscaping?

Its a bit of a mixed bag for us Alex. Yes the smaller beams and planks are useful but of all the timber milled the best seller was the slabbed Oak, unfortunately this all had to be done with an Alaskan hence selling the Miser. Still looking for something much bigger and efficient so will go to the next APF with a fiver sticking out of each ear looking for ideas and a bargain.

By far the best seller was the slabbed Oak and that all had to be done on the Alsakan

Eucalyptus is used for plywood. Soaked trunks before peeling.
It's beautiful coloured, with large variants in tones.
I've never milled any, but wouldn't keeping it in a boule with stickers and cargo straps work?

do you know exactly what species of euc this was?

 

E, gunnii and E globulus do not usually grow in the manner of logs you have unless forest grown so i wonder if it is a different species that the splitting waste of wood we are all used to?

I am interested in the results of using this as fencing. It feels like it should resist decay from the oil.

 

Any experience out there?

I think we can eliminate those two Steve, the size of them brings it down to about four possibles. I will ask our Arb consultant who will bore the tits off me for an hour but will know the species, name and age of the the guy that planted them, the name of the boat the plants came over on and whether it was raining that day.

boring the tits off people is usually my job but i won't commit to the species.

 

i'm thinking Eucalyptus nitens though.
