Kristine called us a while ago with a unique request, she wanted "discs" cut out of a tree that came down on her Lincolnshire property. While not a job that our sawmill could do, we had chainsaws and determination that would fit the bill. She used these custom cut pieces to make rustic table tops. We'll let her work speak for itself. Great work Kristine! You did a fantastic job on your first wood working project.
Peponi Woods is helping salvage urban trees by converting them into usable lumber. Thousands of board feet were saved from the landfill as part of this task. Here's a few pictures of one of the Manitoba Maple's being loaded after manually cutting off some rot, one of us taking off the first few slabs from this log, and the resultant cant before being turned into edged boards.
At just around 6' long it's a shorter log but every slab out of this log was worth it; extremely beautiful character and color. Look for a follow up post later with some details of the slabs.
