Got oak ...

... for a sixpack. It was broken last weekend from snow and wind right at the roadside and the guys were just shreddering the branches.
Up to 40 cm diameter and up to 80 cm long ... heavy stuff says my acheing back.

I guess it's the time of the year when sourcing fresh material is quite easy. Had a day off today and the trailer was already unloaded from last weekends demo at the Fish & Wood Fest.

Mental note for myself: Have a sixpack beer in the trunk for the next months to bribe the roadmen.

haha! I had to "bribe" some men at work when an oak branch needed work in a local park. They had some nice cherry in the back of their van which I got them to chainsaw up for me! We made the cherry into some signs in another local park (in Birmingham). :D
