Brief update, I called round to Garrard & Flack, where Ed kindly cut a few inches off the end of one of my clefts. He has a moisture meter with long prongs, so we compared the middle and the outside edges. Interesting, the outside is currently about 12% moisture, but the middle was over 30%.

So, in terms of overall density, my calculations are pretty accurate. What is clear though is that there is a lot of water that still needs to shift outwards. So, the wood is back in the rafters, and will stay there for a few months yet.

Yes, they are all like this. It comes to the size of the tree and the environment it grew in. The base of this tree was around 75 inches I think, a much greater circumference than many that are felled for bats. It was old (30 years), tall and had grown in a very constant, undisturbed environment. This consistent growth, upwards more than outwards, delivers regularity each year and grains around 1/4 inch apart. There are no wide grains at all in this tree, and where a standard bat willow might give 4 or 5 'rounds', this one gave 9-10, each 30+ inches long.

Just take our money already!

Sounds good mate, looking forward to seeing the results
