  1. Old Hilux. MK4 or Mk5, but in good condition they are few and far between. Minimal electrics, solid trucks though and parts widely available.
  2. Just remember a baseball bat at the bottom of the stairs as one of those layers. You want them to remember that night they had their arms broken.
  3. Seeing them in an episode of Can't Pay, We'll take it away says it all really. They are thieves and it's simple as that really.
  4. A piece of Oak I discovered during a walk. I finally got round to fixing it to a raw steel base. Now it creates a completely unique focal point in the home.
  5. It's been my busiest year since I started the business. Ever since lockdown in March it's been full on. Much quieter now thankfully. I'm pretty sure many people have been spending their furlough money and saved a lot on not going out and not having their holidays abroad. I have also heard landscapers been very busy and I have noticed homeowners having house improvements when we arrive. They deffo are spending money.
  6. In terms of painting the ends what would you recommend? Also, a slab this size what is the average seasoning time here in the UK ? They are 1 to 2 inch thick.
  7. Totally agree with spud, the trunk was riddled with nails further up the trunk where the birdbox was. I was amazed that I only hit the one. I'll get a load of slats ready for next time. This is all new to me. ?
  8. Hey, First time slabbing today and I wanted to capture the experience. I absolutely loved the process and look forward to doing more. Feels really rewarding to make use of wood from a tree where the results will be around for years to enjoy. I plan to turn the slabs into tables tops, chunky shelves and chopping boards. Thanks, Dan. 
  9. Hi, I've been shooting tree decay for the past 5/6 months as a personal photography project and it is now online to view. Shots were taken close to my home in Derby, Kedleston Hall Estate, Calke Abbey and Markeaton Park. View series TREE DECAY — DANIEL DYTRYCH PHOTOGRAPHY WWW.DANIELDYTRYCHPHOTOGRAPHY.CO.UK Beginning from a tiny sapling, over many years of growth, trees grow to provide one of the most important roles in providing... Thanks.
  10. Give a few years. When the accident figures come out on the two rope system HSE will introduce a third rope system. Every tree I assess before I climb it's safer to use SRT, so that is what I use. HSE department are a bunch of knobs.
  11. Jack, you have got a lot to learn about life, lad. You are on a public forum slagging someone off who gave you work and you had the cheek to rob his customer. You come across quite immature and very unprofessional. Good luck in your work because you are going to need all the help you can get.
  12. Hi, I need to find a groundy/climber in Derby for a few jobs. All my work is domestic, pretty nice jobs most of the time and decent pay. If you live in the area, then please send me a message. You do need the relevant NPTC qualifications CS30,31 (optional CS38, 39). Having your own PPE is essential. Look forward to hearing from you. Cheers, Dan.
  13. If i can I just use a silky Gomtaro. There is something very therapeutic about cutting wood with a manual tool. Climbing is much more fun without the chainsaw. You feel more like a feather than a heavy boulder.
