visit to Whitney Saw Mill

I’m making an oak settle. I’ve finalised the design and cost, and so went to Whitney Saw Mill  http://www.whitneysawmills.com/ to collect the oak.

It’s in a fantastic location beside the river Wye on the Herefordshire/Powys border.

converting the timber

An impressive air drying hangar. All the boards are neatly stacked with sticks separating each board. This allows the air to circulate evenly over each board

My boards need to be trimmed down to fit in my van. When I placed my order I sent a cutting list through and the boards are selected and marked up for me. Sasha and Charlie are my workmates today.

Back in the workshop and ready to use. The chunky piece marked “A” will be the front legs.
