Good wood…

April 29, 2010

Finally it arrived! This is English Birch.  Grown in Ross-Shire, Scotland this is the only place in the UK that would sell me bespoke birch slices to my specifications and I pretty much compromised on all my specifications just so i could get some Birch.  I wanted large elipses and ovals with the natural edge but apparently, unless i know a lumberjack/tree surgeon that cuts down Birch trees then I should forget it.   I can buy them in the states but i care about the environment and our economy so i preferred to give my business to Mr and Mrs Mutch in Ullapool.

Anyway, you can’t comprehend my excitement at receiving this today, it was proper Christmas/Birthday/Easter excitement.  For some reason i expected a giant spider to come out the box too.  It didn’t.  I’m somewhat terrified of having loads of wood stored in my tiny bedroom.  It’s a total spider haven anyway and especially now the weather is warming up the little bastards are gonna be invading, SS style.

I can’t wait to get started burning this, some pieces are pretty big, others only about 4″ at their widest so I guess I’ll have to think of some little ideas.

Hooray! :)
