CSOLP hosted a Green Wood Working Skills Day for the local Forest Education Initiative Cluster group on 8th May.

A chilly start to Saturday morning saw the arrival of nine, keen greenwood working students. Martyn took us through the essential safety talk and with his expert tuition we got to grips with the mechanics of making shave horses.

During the day we were lucky enough to find a piece of “olive” ash. The “oohs”and “aahs” went up as we split the log to find the beautiful green, brown pattern revealed within. An informative, enjoyable and productive day was had by all.
