Great to see this reclaimed London Plane tree be sawn down into wooden planks yesterday. A mobile saw mill spent the day preparing the logs ready for drying and eventually in a year’s time they’ll be ready for use.
It’s amazing seeing the history of London through the tree itself. Bits of wartime shrapnel kept appearing through the trunk – from bomb blasts and all sorts.
So only a year to wait for this beautiful seasoned hardwood (if only it kept that fantastic red!), but there is more to come, so eventually there will be an onsite supply ready for your next furniture creations!
