A customer has kindly given me permission to show his photos of a job he undertook using Shawbrook woods waney edge Larch. This is the wall he wanted to disguise before cladding The larch was screwed to 50 x 35 treated battens, at 400 centres, fixed with Express nails. Minimum overlap of 20mm. He also treated the Larch with a Shou Sugi Ban method by charring it with a blow torch. This is a Japanese system to seal the timber and adds a very attractive charred effect. With hindsight the customer mentioned that if he was doing the charring again...

The Gable The inside with benches and pegs If you'd like to build your own Larch hut or would like to use our Larch cladding please get in contact or purchase here

Planked up some beautiful beech yesterday in the sun on the Norwood HD36 for a specific customer. The top plank was still ringing wet from all the rain we've had over the last few weeks but it does show the paterna and grain nicely! Big stuff but no bother to the Bandsaw. I was glad I had the wee front loader though as I was on my ownsome.
