I just finished a commission for a rather special bridge, this is a short video 3 mins going all the way from felling the tree to the finished bridge.

Pretty cool Robin. The video was a little fuzzy, but it looked like that tree had some burls on it. Surely those didn't follow you home to the turning shed did they ? :laughing:

thanks guys glad you enjoyed it. They looked like burls Darren but there was not much interesting happening inside so they didn't make bowls. Crossing tax? I would be happy even with a few pence for everyone that photographs it, its in a very heavily used spot on the penine way (our equivalent of the Appalachian trail)

Very cool bridge. I like how you chose a bent tree and used the bend in the tree to your advantage.

Hey Robin: Walt Rollison here in the Smoky Mountain area of East Tennessee. That's a beautiful bridge and a beautiful video. I hope we see more of your work.
Best regards, Walt/Litlhof.
