    Notre Dame cathedral...

    Ten years ago in Brittany my French work colleagues long house burnt down. Fully for 3 days. The only thing left was the external 3' thick walls and the main oak beam. 2' square and 20'+ long. We had to cut it out. Unbelievably the black char was only 1-2" deep. If I hadn't seen the whole house burnt down I wouldn't have believed it. Air dried for several centuries and still didn't burn.

    Monkey Puzzle

    An idea I've had for a while is a milling directory on Arbtalk. That way we could pass logs,slabs and work to each other. [emoji848][emoji106]

    Have you seen French hyper/super markets? The French are years ahead with that stuff. Hardwood forests are growing considerably faster than being cut down. In the uk if you want a 50' x18"x18" you buy it from France. They have the timber.

    Notre Dame cathedral...

    I was cutting on the border of Loire Atlantique and ille et villain. Oak and Scots pine over storey with sweet chestnut and hazel under. I've never seen such quantities of high grade trunks. [emoji106]
