  1. The legs are by a very good fabricator/wrought iron guy i found, will dig out his details when i have a minute. Were packing at the moment and its manic! thanks, the client was ecstatic, the photo doesnt do it any justice at all but will add some much better ones as soon as were settled in the farm.
  2. honey is ubiquitous, wether there is a food source or not (within range) No orchards required whatsoever i would look for exudates before disrupting bark
  3. if there is any burrs as is often the case on H chestnut i would take it all:001_cool:
  4. not the best image of it but sent this one pout today, was sorry to see it go to be honest, but then me and the mrs get attached to everything i make!
  5. yep i agree, thats a fair price.
  6. I took a gamble and roughed out some 18-19 inch Macrocarpa bowls today, pleasant surprise, wont overlook it again!
  7. lets get bidding! get some more photos up
  8. i would have bought bowl sized lumps off you!
  9. I know the feeling! Brought home a whopping lump of macrocarpa tonight after a gruelling day but wasnt gonna leave it to dry and crack so rough turned and oiled it up to get it stable. Its now 7.30pm! its like therapy:011:
  10. I mean ive been waiting to get my hands on a Catalpa for eons, because it is a fine fine wood:001_huh:
  11. nice simple forms, simple always works
  12. dont bring it in the house if just milled, will dry and move to fast. oil it up wax the ends (first) and should be fine, borers tend to leave sharpish in my experience once the oils penetrate
  13. you must of caught that at just the right time. laeti rot make lovely browns and even tiger oak but boy if it goes a little over you got serious movements and cracking! lovely bit of wood that:thumbup1:
  14. been waiting for ages, lovely wood
  15. probably whats called hard maple, several species. Norway is a goodun, like granite and popular for blocks, especialy expensive ones like this would be
  16. kind of, a lot of hard work involved both prior and to come!
  17. Off grid lifestyle in rural bulgaria:biggrin:
  18. and this statement is the essence of the problem. If we direct our anger and frustrations at the ones who cause those stresses and angers and frustrations (rather than at our own kind, in this case JK)
  19. its on;ly just beginning, we move in september, then the world becomes a new and most wonderous place again:thumbup1:
  20. man alive, nowt more messed up than the minds of folks listen to wayseer's manifesto
  21. We get what we attract, what we manifest, I learned of it, and am indeed as you say, having more than my share of the good life
  22. unsustainable practice, we should be looking at more sustainable approaches, and once the customers understand WHY it is a crap thing to do, i mean think about it! threy will avoid kiln dried
  23. not at all, means i no longer have to do the night shift on such things, so good on ya:thumbup1:
