I have just been cutting some blanks from Beech.
This wood came from a tree that was felled on the Quantock hills about two years ago.
It has bee stored in a container with sticks between each layer to allow air circulation.
This is is all that i have left ,I probably started off with about six times as much as this.
It all cost me about £200 00 so it was a very good buy.
To get the most out of the planks I use a selection of thin disc's cut from ply.
Don't forget to mark your centres it saves a lot of time later on.
I manage it with a bit of support from my Nova.
