It’s always exciting to receive some new timber, especially when you are not sure what will be in the pallet boxes. Michael had a chat with Greig of gmforestry in Ardersier who had some fresh chestnut. He said “I’ll pop you a few other bits in”

As you can imagine it was exciting when our local hauliers McAdie & Reeve arrived with the boxes.

As you can see MrOrk was straight in there.

There is quite a selection, oak, elm, sycamore, beech and the chestnut. Some big lumps and some peedier bits.

The next morning he started to process some of it.

The grain of this particular piece of oak is stunning and was soon on the lathe.

We were not disappointed

Looking forward to seeing them finished when they have dried and been oiled.
