  2. General Woodworking Discussion
    Last year my husband and I had two mature ash trees cut down and milled into 1-inch thick boards. We have almost no woodworking knowledge but were having a hard time saying goodbye to our trees and thought it was a brilliant idea, at the time, to mill them and build furniture out of them. This...

    Hope this is the correct forum to ask this. I have recently hit on the idea (considering the price of timber) of collecting logs from trees cut down by our local municipality, having them milled, dried and stored for future use. Right now I have some pine or fir I have yet to identify, some...
