Cruck framed bird table

I love the curved shape of cruck frames. If it were up to me everything would be crucked...

Cruck framed bird table with shingle roof

This is a prototype cruck framed bird table with cleft shingle roof and oak pegs. I think a nice extra touch would be to extend the purlins and shape them into hooks to hang bird feeders from. I really like how it has turned out.

If you would like one of these or something similar, email me at p.ditchfield(at)

Spring is springing

What a beautiful sunny day. I've got lots of timber on the ground ready for the summers processing and a spring full of building jobs.

Lovely quality ash. Destined to be tent pegs, firewood and various green woodworking projects.
