On thursday we had a storm, which brought down trees and damaged property. I passed a fallen ash tree that had blown over a road, later when I passed again it was sawn up and made safe .I had a look and saw a couple of 3' long chunks so I stopped and picked up two 10" chunks with creamy coloured sapwood and a green-brown heartwood nice! These will be sawn up ito slabs for stools and chairs . This wood would be left to rot a the side of the road or maybe firewood at best:)


  1. Maybe you'll get some nice grain out of that crotch.

  2. Free wood is always the best type of wood!

  3. And then something special will be around for a long time. good for you
