  1. Thanks for your help, the tree is/was until I took it down about 5 year ago in the UK. The leaves were around 6-7 inch.
  2. Any help to ID this would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Thanks for letting me know, the post is taking a bit longer due to last weeks weather. Happy turning.[emoji106]
  4. Hi Mark, posted these for you this morning, 1st class Royal Mail, so you should get them tomoz. They are fairly sharp at the moment, I use a bench grinder with a green wheel & then a wet stone to sharpen but an ordinary grinding wheel will suffice. Or you could go old school & use a flat stone (not one you find in your garden) which I do on occasions. Happy turning. P.s. It can be very addictive.
  5. Hey Mark, I’ve got two roughing out & two bowl gouges you can have that I already have doubles for. Message me your address & I’ll post them to you.
  6. I’ll throw this one in for debate. Is the removal of the tree to abate a nuisance? ie: is the tree leaning over the clients garden, preventing them from enjoying their outside space? Thoughts?
  7. And a monkey puzzle that looks like its bark is slipping down.
  8. Aira Force in the Lake District has a wishing tree/log.
  9. It may have been hollowed out using an Arbortech, Proxxon or Dremel with a flexible shaft.
  10. Hello Mark, I would be interested in undertaking a site visit with a view to quoting for the work. I’ll pm you my mobile for a chat.
  11. I know Mike Dean at Barley Wood in East Sussex, turns large pieces like porch columns.
  12. It's an MB100. It's either 3t or 3.5t. They were in production from 1981 to 1996 not many made it over here in the UK.
  13. Any help with ident on this one would be gratefully received.
  14. These came up for the first time this year on a customers Beech and within four weeks the entire tree has defoliated. I'm guessing the tree has been infected for some time before the fungus appeared. Removal for this one I think.
