These last few days have been somewhat disrupted with various external meetings and other commitments and the work on sorting out, planing and processing the Oak Timber have been patchy. So far, after today’s full day, we have selected 32 narrow pieces and sawn them to 95 mm wide, then selected 11 pieces just over 180 mm wide. These pieces have now been put away back on the Oak Storage rack outside for later in the project.
The rest are the 40 mm thick oak is being processed into more than 75 meters of Fascia boards, we need 40 pieces of oak which are 150 mm high, we have enough planks to make 20 pieces from whole wood and parts to make another 20 from two narrower pieces glued together.
All of the pieces have now had one flat surface planed (60 pieces in total). Now we are planing the narrow edges to ensure that they are right angles to the processed face. On Monday, we will finish that task off and then start gluing and joining together strips.
