Here’s a video of some green oak adzing I’ve been doing to make a pair of outdoor seats for either side of a green oak picnic table.
There’s about 10 seconds at normal speed, then about 4 minutes 20 seconds in slo-mo, which may get rather boring, if so fast forward to about 4m 30s where it’s back to normal speed and some work with the inshave.
Notice how the work rocks, that’s the pressure of being on film. The screw clamp came loose and I didn’t want to stop and tighten it up again.
Anyway, the pair looks like this at the moment.
I did some more of this:
Unfortunately it burnt rather faster than usual and I had the lowest return yet, the charcoal had been merrily burning away to itself overnight before I shut it down and I got about half the weight I should have done. Can’t win ’em all!
Never mind, on the plus side we have lots of these:
Bee eggs in a new colony we’ve just taken on to reinforce our small colony with the drone-laying queen.
And the bluebells are out in Strid Wood too.
