Pippy Oak? No Burr-oblem

Spread the love

Now tell me that doesn’t look edible to you..?? Well it’s not a Burr Oak souffle more’s the pity…  we’d be sorted for lunch!

It’s just an amazingly pippy Oak log that Dave Fry dropped off on that first load from Floors.

It’s a smallish boule of through and through… not seen the measures yet so can’t give you sizes but I spotted some giant Burry Oak logs stacking up waiting to be sticked after this one.  

Graham and Grant are busy with the camera and the tape measure so I’ll share more pictures soon.

As an aside, if anyone out there loves to use Pippy Oak… you’re very welcome to come and put dibs on a log…

If you haven’t seen Burry Oak in our shed before it’s probably because it doesn’t often make it all the way to the kiln dried stock shed…  so get it whilst it’s not hot!

    Hi OWWM, Well if there’s anything particular you fancy I’m sure we can figure something out.. we can’t have you shipping fresh air when you can squeeze a few sticks of English waney edge board in there to keep those vintage machines company.. just give a shout!

    That is some very pretty wood. If I wasn’t all the way over in Somerset (the other one in New Jersey), I’d come by and have a look at it in person. I’ve been doing some checking to see what needs to be done to import English timber into the States… I still have some space in the can over at Felixstowe. You never know.
