Prostheta Posted August 28, 2010 Report Share Posted August 28, 2010 Heh. We bought a tree from a neighbouring hölö ukko in Isojoki for a bottle of Cognac. Our next job is to figure out how to make it fall down (there's a task in of itself), then we're going to have to de-branch, de-bark and chop it for drying. Tree in the centre....roughly 20m to the diverging branches at the top, approximately 70-80cm diameter :-) The information I have found on Aspen (which we believe it is, anyway) is that it can be silicon-ish and therefore requiring much sharpening of tools. The main use for our tree is going to be for furniture, but I'm considering keeping some to one side if it has any use in guitars - even tops as a natural white wood! Will update this thread with tree felling pics and all that of course. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
