Opened up

I cut in and the noise from the saw told me the timber was sound, when the slab fell away. I was well chuffed, with the nice hard dark coloured heartwood, with all the holes in them.
I had thought the Ash logs might be a tad rotten, there was a little bit of rot,

but these perished parts just add to the character of this windfall Ash:)


  1. Some folks just leave any holes. Some folks make their own filler from sawdust from the same piece of wood, and a few bold souls use contrasting filler for the heck of it. Hey, it's wood, it's going to look good no matter what you do!

  2. Nothing beats opening a log like this and being the first to see the beautiful wood inside. I'll look forward to seeing what you make with these!

  3. Nature provides so many interesting things to look upon.
