    Paid upfront for a carpenter to make us a new king size bed. He's only gone and done a bunk! It's just one thing on top of another....

    There was an old man who lived by a forest. As he grew older and older, he started losing his hair, until one day, on his deathbed, he was completely bald. That day, he called his children to a meeting... He said, "Look at my hair. It used to be so magnificent, but it's completely gone now. My hair can't be saved. But look outside at the forest. It's such a lovely forest with so many trees, but sooner or later they'll all be cut down and this forest will look as bald as my hair." "What I want you to do..." the man continued. "Is, every time a tree is cut down or dies, plant a new one in my memory. Tell your descendants to do the same. It shall be our family's duty to keep this forest strong." So they did. Each time the forest lost a tree, the children replanted one, and so did their children, and their children after them. And for centuries, the forest remained as lush and pretty as it once was, all because of one man and his re-seeding heirline.

    A friends daughter is called Robin Steele
  5. I thought it would b, but wondered if there some sort of snobbism involved as a chap who does hedgelaying in our area always asks if I’ve got hazel in spite of there bein loads of nice willow coppice closer to him! This is prob one of my favourite threads on AT, I don’t do hedge laying but would like to, though a friend and I did do 300m of 7 yr old mix species a few yrs ago ( took 2 days) by doing pleach cuts and pinning down with the next one, no stakes or binders. It didn’t look as beautiful as the stuff you pros do but has worked well Sadly the customer won’t shell out for cost of materials for doing proper job as there are literally miles of hedge that would benefit from laying now the spirals have been removed
  6. Is willow any good for binders?
  7. Maybe “convenience pile” would b better term?
  8. It’s a load of toss, I have notified all my customers who 1 m3 loads (about 10% of customers) that I will no longer b doing loads under 2m3 and all bar one have said they’ll have 2 in the future. We now invoice all customers via email with a note to say may need further seasoning although mc is often at 20 it can b as high as 25
  9. They are hard wearing and comfortable btw
  10. Rope will b fine the eye in end of rope is what is spliced
  11. I paid £100 off a friend, for mine but seen it up for 300 on Amazon when I was searching for a copy
  12. Admirable setup and work ethic from someone so young![emoji106] So is £100-130 the going rate for any timber over say 10” top diameter that’s relatively good for milling?
  13. Another for the Stihl here apart from the silly side bit and the tools all fall out the other side ( have wee bungee cord to pin them I did like the husky but as moat have said spouts are shite. Maybe someone should come up with thread adapter so you can put Oregon/ Stihl spouts on the husky, shouldn’t be too hard what with 3D printers n that!
