« Part 10: Late arrival of MY present.... Part 11 of Wood Gloat series Part 12: Slabs and Burls. »

Had another visit by my mate keith yesterday and he brought me some more timber…
Some more conkleberrry in the barrow… and two long boards of Hairy Oak..
There are 3 roots of Olive wood and one branch… as well as some Emu Apple and Mulga.
In this shot there is some Crows Ash at the end on the right…
This is a close up of the Olive tree root that has been quickly wire brushed… will end up a the base for a coffee table…

Nice stockpile of wood. Also looking forward to seeing the coffee table.
What are you planning for the Hairy Oak?

When I see some of the twisted and what appear to be small pieces you get I am always amazed how much you seem to get out of it. Congrats on the haul mate!
