  1. when will you turn the Utile boards into tables? got any pictures in daylight?
  2. not fitted yet but i reused an old table top to make a desk for my nephew to do his GCSE's at in his room. was badly bowed so it needed flattening... some before and afters.
  3. makes perfectly good timber in my opinion and being such a wide tree will be good quality too. yes it may not be a decorative elm but you should be able to get knotless stock from some of it?
  4. these are some Angelim vermelho 5" skittle balls i've made.
  5. what section size are they? certainly not jarrah to my eyes. the other candidate is usually ekki but it's not that either. i suspect that it is a south american timber called Angelim vermelho, (Dinizia excelsa) which i have been using for my skittle balls. might be interested in them if they are the right size...

  6. that's right up your street Saul. i can see you milling that already...
  7. go old school gobby. they are the best you can get. this is worth having. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SEDGWICK-MB-12-X-9-240volt-PLANER-THICKNESSER-SEDGEWICK-99p-START-NO-RESERVE/402559286167?hash=item5dba673b97%3Ag%3AaKoAAOSwjV9fsqjO&LH_ItemCondition=4
  8. might be able to do a top but it would not be a single board. more likely bookmatched.
  9. i have three large boards of whitebeam which is even harder that hornbeam if they would be of use. 3-4" thick i think.about 16"wide and 6' long. bone dry.
  10. oak all the way... Quercus robur is the most common species found in houses.
  11. remember this sucker i was asked to make? finally got round to the construction of the block in sapele. currently weighs around 35kg.
  12. message sent. does the gardener have any logs left?
  13. for me it's ones that have a beautiful timber that gets turned into firewood rather than timber or turning blanks....
