This is the log that Jake cut.
This is a jarra tree that has been dead for some time before it was felled. Jarra doesn't rot easily.
Behind is the forest. This shot shows the clearing which has young trees. Ziggy gives a size comparison for the size of the log and the plants.
A small pinus radiata lies split revealing the colors inside.
The newly built wing on Jakes house shows planks cut from jarra.
Jake cut off a metre or so of the log of Jarra so that he could get it on the trailer.
Jake used a system of slides and a wire rope to winch the log onto the trailer.
The winch is tied to a stump some metres away.
This cut off shows the wonderful color of the jarra.
This wood is highly prized by people who work in wood. Including me!
More to follow.
Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
