  1. Looking for some advice, I milled an Oak slab from a stem I felled about 5yrs ago which I then let sit for about 2yrs before bringing it in the garage to work it, figuring it would be sufficiently seasoned. I was planning on turning it into a table so I’ve planed it and started sanding however it’s developing a crack which I’m convinced is spreading. This is my first attempt so excuse my ignorance but is it likely to simply split in two and if so is it doomed or can something be done to prevent it? I’ve attached a couple of pics which don’t show it fantastically. It’s a really nice piece and I’ve invested a lot of time into it now so don’t want to give up on it too easily similarly I also don’t want to press on and get rid of my existing dining table if it’s days are numbered. Any advice would be much appreciated! thanks in advance, Joe
  2. I’ve read a lot about oils and wax but I can’t find anything which gives the finish I am after suggesting to me it can’t, which is not a word I like to use, be done! I would like to keep the sanded matt finish on an oak slab (table top) but bring out the grain, without colouring too much, yet protect it from the kids spilling their cereal or the misses her coffee. Am I looking for tartan paint or is there a way of achieving this? The slab has good colour/grain without any treatment so I’d take a protected matt finish over bringing out the grain if it’s a case of one or the other. Any assistance much appreciated, novis at work!
  3. Hi , I am trying to make a table out of some hard wood I found, with out a clue on what to do I stupidly thought I could cut straight enough with my chainsaw without a guide or any make shift mill,but its all over the place with a straight edge even after an hour of planing a plank.I want rustic old style not so perfect look but I also want plates to not rock,it has to be perfectly flat on one side. So...after looking on utube for ideas I found the poor boy sawmill being skint means this is the only option I have,or is it? Planks are 3-4inch thick so I hope to scim an inch max of one side to get it flat. The one thing that concerns me with the poor boy sawmill is drilling holes into my chainsaw bar, will this weaken it and make it dangerous for cutting logs into biscuits? or should I drill an old bar I have that looks too worn to use for biscuits and use that? or is that dangerous as it looks well used/old. Any advise appreciated,thanks.
  4. Hi all, I'm looking for a large single slab, dried with dimensions 10ft x 3ft x 1.5in (is that even doable!?) for table. No live edge but straight cut. No cedar if poss. Any pics of what you have in stock or anything that might be suitable? (and an idea of cost too!) Sorry, I hope this is the right board for this question... Thx Chris
  5. Hello all, I'm just a lowly wood burning Joe who has recently taken delivery of a large Ash tree, (thanks Erskine Tree Surgeons, Glasgow). Whilst I plan to season and burn the smaller stuff, I cannot bring myself to burn the large Ash Discs I was thinking a table top (can you buy cast iron legs?) or a bench but that's as far as I got. Can you help please? I'm no expert and only have basic tools! (chainsaw, electric planer, chop saw etc.) Thanks, Cris
  6. Hi Everyone, I live in London, and want a new table for my flat, whose top basically looks like a wooden slab still in the non-symmetrical shape of a tree. Not sure if I can describe it any better... Does anyone sell these? Many thanks! Carlos
