These photos show a bit of the milling and drying process along with the final results. This wood was rescued from the Spanish Banks wood lot which was destined for firewood or eventually to the landfill.

I milled the planks on the beach and kept the unusual shapes as natural as possible. I wasn’t sure what the species of the wood was at first so my intension was to make a work bench out of it. 

Once the wood was dry, I started to work with it and discovered the incredible grain which was hiding under the surface.

 I changed my tactic and created a very unique table which is now being used to display my antique chain saw collection inside my home.

A closeup of some of the natural shapes I was able to retain. By hand milling I can easily work with my clients to preserve these sorts of natural wood features.

OK, just one more shot of this juicy grain.
