Cottage smells of

Danish oil, yum!

I picked up a slab of 800 year old yew on Saturday to use as a cutting board, beautiful warm wood.


Then we had a visit from someone who keeps horses next to us, a tree had blown down and blocked her entrance to the field and stables could we take the chainsaw up and move it......C would never turn down a chance to play with a chainsaw so off they went and came back with this little lot

A large pile of hawthorn for next years fire. Talking of fire ours is lit this evening....you'd never believe it was the height of summer.

OMG (say it with pauses in between for effect) that is a GORGEOUS piece of wood. I don't know that I would be able to cut on it-I would be so torn!
It must be cooler there than here. Still in the 90s F at 2200.
Congrats on the free wood!
