Clefts coming on...
« on: September 27, 2017, 07:04:51 AM »

Morning all,

Sorry, I've been absent for ages, what with cricket and life and whatever. Also managed to sign myself off the Forum and got stuck outside it, so big thanks to the CBF technical johnnies for helping me back in.

So, the clefts keep on drying out. All being well they should be ready for use around November/December. The edges have been dry for a while now, about 12% moisture and falling, but getting the moisture out of the centre is the tricky bit. You'll remember the clefts were massive at the start because I was paranoid about them warping. We've now cut a lot of them down now, and this seems to be helping the drying process. Seeing as we felled the tree in February, I can well understand why many willow suppliers use kilns.

See the photo below (the white clefts are mine, not the 2 grey ones on the top row):

They won't catch us this time! Not this time! They haven't spotted us! No, they're all snoring in their bunks! Or, you know what? They're drinking at the bar, celebrating our sinking! Not yet, my friends. Not yet!

Photobucket doesn't work for anyone these days, need to use another provider I'm afraid.

I've been away too long! Any ideas on alternatives?
