Autumn 2013 Wood Update.

Just a quick update, haven't posted in ages and it was my ambition to do more and keep a record of it here, so I failed a bit this year really. For one reason or another work took it out of me this year but it looks like we are ending on a high with this fantastic kickstarter project This success should also mean more wood time coming up and here's a few autumn photos to get things started.

Mum's finds of the day!

Bacon Sandwiches and Tea for lunch!

It was  real bumper crop of sweet chestnuts this year!

My planks for tree house construction are coming along well. I'm using a Granberg small log mill attachment on my Stihl 261 Chainsaw. 

Made some extra high swings for any visiting children (and adults) to play on.


  1. Good to see you back Tom. Look forward to more updates and a more productive wood year... i know how work can get in the way... i'm still trying to make pottery! My mate Mark's just got his permaculture blog up and running, you might be interested

  2. Good to hear how things are going, Tom, and that you are still loving the woodland. Keep it up, and keep us updated. I would love to be able to do what you are doing so am living the dream through your experiences (that sounds a little creepier than I meant it to, but I'm sure you know what I mean).
