Mobile Sawmilling - Sussex, Kent, Surrey, London Mobile Sawmilling covering Sussex, Kent, London, Surrey and the rest of the South of Englan.
I run a 6-16 Lucas sawmill which can quickly convert large or small logs into accurate dimensional timber. I can also offer the service of flattening wide seasoned boards making them much easier to work with. As well as the Lucas sawmill I also run an Alaskan chainsaw mill which is perfect for cutting wide slabs and planking trees that are in areas which may be difficult to access.
From this sawmill I can also provide Oak and Sweet chestnut gateposts as well as cladding, planks, boards and any other dimensions you may require.
I have a great passion for woodwork and can convert a log into garden furniture and any other wooden ideas you might have. More pictures of work undertaken in the past on my website.

Also available - Mobile log splitting and log cutting. I use a portable electric hydraulic log splitter which can quickly process large rings into useable firewood. South East of England

A Training Resource for Traditional Timber Building

Trawcoe

Woodnet have completed a partnership project with architects, carpenters and woodwork trainers to support carpentry vocational skills training.

Supported by the Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme Woodnet participants visited several European countries to discover the differences, and many similarities in timber construction and wood decoration.

The background to this research is available at www.trawcoe.com  and this web portal also provides a link to a 3D models exploring many of the structures, ranging from a barn in Kent to a Latvian windmill, a Romanian church and a French farmhouse.
