Back to school for the kids means back to the woods for me and Milo the dog.
Using the chainsaw mill, I’ve been cutting some chunky slabs from a fork in an ash tree. The plan is to use these to make some coffee tables once they’ve been air dried for a few years.
Cutting through the fork allows wider boards to be made, these ones are about a metre long and half as wide. I’ve kept them deliberately thick, about 60mm, to allow for cupping and twisting that’s likely to occur from cutting through a fork in this way.
