Its a little after the fact but I simply have to write about the amazing Tweed Valley Forest Festival we visited last year! We visited the wood markets at Peebles Community centre and out on the green as part of the Tweed Valley Forest Festival held on sat and sun. The indoor market had a fantastic selection of beautiful hand made wood products, including furniture, bowls etc and wood for carving. We picked up a couple of Christmas presents and had to leave before we went too far. The outdoor market was really busy – lots of activities for kids to do and crafts to try out. Some of the best chainsaw carvers in Scotland were there competing in Carvefest! They created some amazing carvings – the competition was won by Garry Shand; he won the judges and the people choice for his carving of two bears sitting in a tree. The Scottish Conker Championships were held for the 9th year running, the winners were: Junior – Jack Craigen; Youth – Stuart Head; Adult – Steve Whitehorn; Rogue – Iain Laidlaw. Peebles food festival was there too with delicious food and drink. All in all this is a really great gathering of all things 'woody' each year it is growing and the organisers are looking for anyone making wooden crafts or other things produced in a woodland to exhibit next year. It is a great day out for all the family and runs Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd October 2016 (10.30am to 4.30pm). Further Details can be found at Tweed Valley Forest Festival - Wood Market, Conkers & More!
Hi Everyone, I have a couple of large Copper Beech logs (Fagus sylvatica Purpurea) ready to be milled in Bothwell, South Lanarkshire & I was wondering of anyone was interested in the boards from them. I haven't milled them yet so you could specify sizes. The logs have been cut to 3 m in length already & the largest is about 34 " (approx 86 cm) in diameter & the smaller of the 2 is approx 24". I also have quite a few large Ash logs from the same job (there is also some large logs of other species such as Sycamore & Lime). All offers considered - we can deliver if reasonably local otherwise you can pick them up from the site. Regards, Martin Greener Glens
Hello everyone! I've found a bunch of tenon cutters along with forstner bits from the American company Lumberjack Tools. Does anyone know of them and somewhere in the UK that I can get them? Im desperate to make stuff, but my hands a covered in blisters from my machete (haven't got around to getting a draw knife or anything sensible) I've seen the Veritas ones, but they are expensive and only have one cutter which in my mind seems to be less balanced than the dual cutters offered by Lumberjack Tools. Any help vastly appreciated!
