Irresistibubble… that’s what it is

Walnut boards always makes me think of Aero chocolate bars… which I haven’t even had for years. 

It’s these lovely little pieces of bubbly grained English Walnut boards, they’re busier than one of Peter’s Hawaiian shirts! And speaking of the Master & Commander of the Kiln Dried Shed, he’s been having a tidy up in the English Walnut bay because the new stock is in and he’s chopped off some long ends because they make his bay look untidy.

What a neat freak!

B.C…. Before Cabin

Should we start a new calendar from today… from the first day in the life of our new portacabin ?

It is going to go down as quite a landmark moment at Cocking Sawmills, I can tell.. teahuts don’t grow on trees for timber suppliers you know.. !

Walnut, high in omega fatty acids

It’s True! The fruit of the Walnut tree is deemed a ‘super food’.

The Walnut, full of antioxidants, it is of great nutritional benefit to us humans. So it stands to reason that the wood of the tree is a ‘super wood’, full of incredible qualities and of huge nutritional benefit to us humans… well Ok, maybe not nutritional, but undoubtedly of benefit.

The Rack

It sounds ominous…  “The Rack” but it really isn’t.

It’s a timber rack … it’s a rack for timber. 

The timber rack is shelves, slots, gaps, rails, uprights, bays and whatever else you want to call them for keeping bits of wood off the floor… off the forklift.. off the saw bench… off the planer thicknesser.. off the rollers on the bandmill.. off the kitchen worktop..  and off my desk!!! (more…)

O Christmas Tree ! …
