Cleft Chestnut Gate

Garden gate in cleft Chestnut. Fixings are Oak pegs and copper nails.

Roundwood Log Store and Gate Hurdles

Just finished making some cleft gate hurdles for my latest log store. These hurdles are of a traditional style and would have once been used around these parts for folding livestock onto fodder crops. I am using these to keep the cattle out of my log store. They are made from Chestnut which I traded with Kirby at Kirby Woodworks. In return he got some high quality Ash logs to pound and weave into Ash split baskets.

I have seasoned firewood for sale at £90 per cubic metre.
