Timber from the Mayflower Building Project will be used to make the upstairs roof supports.
They were just laying in the grass. Enormous slices and chunks of aged oak. No longer needed for the renovation project, forgotten and resting. One-piece was drawn on with chalk and divided into the exact sizes I need for the ceiling knees. Decision made for me.
What is a waney edge?
Cut from the whole tree, instead of slicing the trunk edge into a straight rectangular plank, the edge of the tree remains and creates a rustic wavy edge.
Timb A Haul is a large site and as soon as you enter the smell of freshly cut wood is fresh in the air. Giants of trees lie drying in all weathers waiting to be turned into beautiful pieces of furniture. The pieces I have chosen are oak from Norfolk. The wood colour and grain with waney edges will make the bus feel warm, snug and elegant.
