Deep in Wood visit

 I paid a visit to the wood yard called 'Deep in Wood' near Abingdon. I went there four years ago when they were setting up and it has certainly come on. They have good wood stock and an impressive mill.
This 2" board of burr brown oak immediately caught my eye and I had to have it.

The board was quite flat which meant it can be used pretty much whole after planing.
I knocked the bark off in the shop and there were plenty of creatures living in there despite the board being dry. I treated it with woodworm solution and put it to one side to let it dry properly in my shop.

The burr is really nice and this should make a cracking little side table.


  1. Can you tell me more about treating wood with "woodworm solution", please?

    1. Hi Thomas, I use Cuprinol Woodworm Killer. All the best, David.

  2. Some are very accommodating to the typically short blade lengths of wood carving blade edges. Diamond coated slipstones are very nice. Some sharpening stones can even be found on a key chain or be as small as a credit card. So very convenient. best wood router table
