  1. Site of specific scientific interest ?

    That's what I looked on and the field was definitely not outlined 👍🏻
  2. Site of specific scientific interest ?

    The landowner says he doesn't mind it coming out and had granted me access, was just making me aware of the sssi but doesn't seem to have one when I look on the gov website maps
  3. Anyone come across working on land with an sssi on it ? Just been asked to remove an ash tree at the bottom of a garden, when asking the landowner whose field we wanted to access into, was told it was an sssi listed field. Been on the gov website to have a look and the map shows nothing on it, nearest land is about 6 miles away with an sssi on it ?

  11. Boring out silver birch

    It was just a set I bought from screwfix for £39.99, I used the 54mm to bore the hole (biggest in the set) then used a 41mm to sit the tea light in at the botttom. Also found it easier to bore out two small holes side by side to form the top of the heart then used a small drill and chisels to do the lower part, still room for improvement as the other half requires 8 in birch for the wedding 😁
  12. Boring out silver birch

    Managed to knock this up out of a piece of pine, on with some birch ones tomorrow 😁
  13. Boring out silver birch

    Cheers for the advice folks, got myself a forstner bit set and numerous other drills & chisels. First attempt was a bit shady but had a bit of inspiration for the next effort 👍🏻😊
  14. Boring out silver birch

    The picture does just show one made out of bark but I'm wanting to leave some of the heartwood in and also not go right through the bottom, just had a look at those forstner drill bit sets at screwfix, only £39.99 so think that may be the way forward
