Douglas Fir Extraction Part 1

Douglas Fir Extraction (Part 1 - the site visit)

Ash from the kiln.

We have just removed approximately 4.5m3 of gorgeous Ash from the kiln and nearly 0.5m3 disappeared in the process. The lucky customer was there when the doors opened and had prime picks of the timber. The largest pieces are around 5.3m long 600mm plus wide and 57mm thick and the best part there is some Olive Ash in the boards and would make idea counter tops or table tops. There is also various thicknesses, suitable to make a very special staircase. The timber came from a wind blown tree on the Ostaig House Estate on the Isle of Skye. 

"White Container"

White Container Roof:

New Roof for White Container After finding a leak in the container roof, we repaired it and sealed the top of the container with specialist paint and just to make sure we fitted an extended roof (to cover the entrance as well). Internally a de-humidification unit and heater have been fitted and now our stock of Cherry and Sycamore has been moved to here as an extension to our dry store. Once the Ash has completed the drying process this will also be stored here.

Ash in the kiln

Approximately 4.5m3 of Ash is now in the kiln. When the log was milled it was found to have a reasonable amount of Olive colouration on the boards. The anticipated completion of the drying process is early March

New Web Site

The complete list of kiln dried timber is now on the new web site. All prices are ex VAT and ex works (Lochcarron). You will also see that there is complete list of our Hardwood Logs, in addition to some 20 tonne of good clean European Larch. We are hoping for this site to go live in a couple of weeks.
