    Big old Oak to be milled but what cuts???

    a tree that size should really be quartersawn as much as possible as this will keep the boards nice and stable during the drying process along with each board looking nicer one turned into something like furniture...

    Elm tree id

    i'd say wych elm too.
  13. box elder can be lovely stuff if it has nice colour in the heart. do not just chuck it away. a mob of woodturners will be all over you if it has a nice colour to it and it gets chucked on the tip site. try adding it to a few facebook groups. presuming it has the lovely colouring in the heart then they will love it.

    Oak Sleepers

    it's true to some extent as the moisture already in the timber allows any fungus into the wood that much faster meaning it can rot quicker. timber that has been seasoned for a few years is often a much longer lasting item but it will be species dependant.

    Al, try getting in touch with the toolpost. they might be interested in dealing direct. bloke called felix hemsly.
