Getting on with it

I've been out in the oak woods, doing some thinning and processing of the timber, with the chainsaw mill.

Early spring sunshine, tagteam between me with the chainsaw and the woodpeckers, who are the real foresters round here!

I have had help from Arthur, my son, for a few days. We haven't really worked together for the past two years because he has been off cheffing.

I am doing the work in return for half the timber. The trees are not really big enough for riving, so most will be flatsawn with the mill. I am laying it all up for future projects.

I have also been making this bed from European oak for Stephen.

I was also seconded for the very important job of preparing the potato bed at the allotment.

 I can already taste them!
