Finding a silver lining in culled Hunt Club oaks

My hobby is making ‘Windsor chairs.’ Many parts for these are best made using green, i.e. not dried, oak.

When I read that The Hunt Club had obtained permission to cut down quite a few of these my eyes lit up. I sent an email saying that if some of their neighbours might be upset they could at least make one neighbour very happy.

This they did. My email was passed on to the property manager, Scott Heron, who was very helpful in letting me choose the piece I wanted. He then cut it to length and loaded it onto my friend’s trailer.

Thanks to Scott and The Hunt Club, I’m happy to get to work with my wedges and sledge hammer.
