    Lock Down?

    Stop panic buying that's why the shops are empty. I'll keep milling for as long as i can to pay the bills and be my family's hero by keeping a roof over our heads.

    Could say the same about all the half wits panic buying Standing so close to each other for ages just to keep a clean arse.

    I read that you can go to work if not able to from home and that you can have one form of exercise a day. It's essential for me to work and exercise .That's me sorted.

    Surely it's essential for us self employed to still work to pay the bills if not getting much help. I'm lucky with the milling that i do i work alone in the middle of nowhere. I guess with the tree teams it's all about trying to keep the safe distance not just from jo public but from each other clean hands not touching your face etc. With all the panic buying going on most people won't even notice us as be more worried about how much bog roll is left on the shelves.
  6. Milling a bit of Walnut today with the Panther.
  7. Made a start on milling some timber at the Arboretum in Romsey today. Getting some nice boards from this Oak. 10 ft long and just over 3 ft at the widest point x 3'' T.
  8. This is what i had a local chap make for me. It's sat on an 8x4 bench and can fit around a 6ft x 34'' slab on it. Works very well. Have a 2'' planning bit fitted can be a bit slow but adds more value to the board showing off the grain and character more. If the board hasn't to much twist it takes no time at tall. Finish is so good that just needs a belt sander run over it. This was the first one that he had made and has made a few changes since. Slab is Beech 1670 and 26 at widest point. Just under an hour to flatten and sand. I find by doing this it helps to sell the larger slabs as most hobbyists don't have the equipment to do this. t2 sled8.mov
  9. This is the set up i brought from Per at LOGOSOL . Once you get one end up on the first step it does make it easier to lift up on the log bed. I've just fitted a trailer winch to the top of a short accrow prop that works ok on the bigger lumps.
  10. Cheers Khriss. I milled myself a 1'' thick slab for a piece of wall art. Looking forward to getting it out of the kiln in a months or so time. http://www.facebook.com/wowallthatwood
  11. Out with the Panther milling up some stunning Yew.
  12. I sell all my timber on my fb page. As above reaches hundreds of people get a few shares and a few followers. I can't fault it.
  13. Good job and nice timber Kav
  14. Nice bit of Yew coming off the mill today. Oh and an Elm crotch.
