timber joinery

6

Found this old piece of timber in the garden. I restored it and did my first ever proper bit of old school joinery. I only had a saw, tape measure and a chisel to work with so it’s a little rough around the edges but I’m very happy with it. Some genius came up with this in the past in order to join massive logs together to be used to build huge sea worthy battle ships. They didn’t have the luxury of working with metal back then so they had to get creative.

“Took my first trip to the fantastic english hardwood timber, in cocking last week to reccie some sycamore for an upcoming job. What a wonderful way to purchase timber; from people as passional, and far more knowledgeable about english timber. Had great fun searching through piles of stickered boules, and the guys working were beyond helpful. Came away with some lovely Oak, Elm and Ash as well!…..”
