The Den Workshop
Today is the eighteenth of September. Just back from the woods and am finishing up my packing for university. Have had a great set of final days. Had two friends down on Thursday and we got all of the sycamore thinning’s moved up to the site so they can be processed and milled into planks.Continue reading “Den Update: Leaving the Cabin. 18/09/2021”
Today is the twenty sixth of July. As summer races along and autumn being just round the corner I decided to finally get the firewood situation under control for the next couple years. Along with help from Hannah and fin, I have got myself in good standing. The first firewood to get lopped was theContinue reading “Den update: Firewood 26/07/2021”
Today is the eighteenth of July and the roof is coming along swimmingly. After months of no progress on it, I have finally been given that final kick to push on and get somewhere. After a rather long and intense shingle making session, along with a clearing up the final bits on the south coppiceContinue reading “The Den Cabin: Woodsman on the roof. 18/07/2021:”
Today is the thirteenth of July. General update time. The weather has vastly improved over the last couple of weeks and this has led to great progress being made.

Today is the twenty second of February. The last month has been a rather slow and sad one with little progress happening in the woods despite the rapid improvement in the weather. There has been minor progress on the back wall and the front loft. As well I have been working on a new hazelContinue reading “Den update: Longbows and slow progress 28/02/2021”
Today is the fifteenth of January. Was a rather cold morning in the woods today with icicles hanging off the wood store eves. Work has been at a stand still since coppicing due to the cold meaning cob just will not set and making it is a rather unpleasant job. So I have been findingContinue reading “Den cabin: Cold Chimneys. 12/01/2021”
Today is the second of January. Today and yesterday have been the den block coppicing day. The next coup of hazel stools have been felled for coppice. Last year I put three stools to the saw and the results were rather impressive. The stools at first did not seem to do anything and it wasContinue reading “Den Woodlands: Coppicing 2021.”
