Milling with the National Trust

Spent the other morning at Freshfield National Trust Reserve helping one of the wardens make the components for a couple of balance beams and a large bench out of a recently felled mature pine.
You just can't beat working in the woods on a sunny day!

Chainsaw milling oak

Finished milling  a big oak today, got it all stacked and air drying in the barn, all before 2pm :)
Cut mostly 2 &1/4" planks, a couple of 2" and some 1& 3/4"

Feeling a bit achy now, but all in all a great experience.
