    here Jon Snow of The Windy Smithy is adapting an existing wood burner from his range to be lightweight and suitable for use in the shelters You can read about Jon s aspect of the project here This year has seen us begin to deal with our waste including sawdust which we are now having made into brilliant bio logs in collaboration with Devon Biofuels They are ideal for wood burners burn really efficiently and clog the chimney up a lot less than wood It makes sense then that we should offer to send out a pallet load 70 bags to use in burners The kind and generous Herbert and Tim at Devon bio fuels have donated a second pallet Both are now ready for transportation which Ben Gillespie is co ordinating If you d like to make a donation toward any of the projects shelters burners or fuel please either click on the respective link above or contact me on 07969948631 Thanks in advance Jo in Uncategorized October 26 2015 Comment Search Recent Posts Help us Keep refugees warm this winter We re finalists and we need your help Bars benches and banqueting tables Wonderful woodland cabin in deepest

    spruce a lovely lightweight and light coloured wood from Cornwall and did a number of tests involving hummus red wine and olive oil oh that was a tough night We decided on Treatex hard wax oil to use on the wood as it not only showed no signs of damage during the robust testing but had no odour And as these tables were going to be in use a few days after treating them this was important So it began and the tables and benches were festival bound in plenty of time to be arranged and dressed ready for the party people Hooes yurt ready for Glastonbury people Next up were Shebbear college who having seen the benches we produced for Hooes yurts decided they d like some too These didn t need to be collapsible but they did need to be tough enough to cope with 14 year old boys larking about on them so we chose Douglas fir from Dartmoor and finished them with Treatex organic UV oil topped with Danish oil They obviously liked them because they immediately ordered another load Lovely Douglas fir bench seats perfect for that first kiss Hooes yurts have since returned with a request for a bar same spec lightweight collapsible sturdy and light coloured to match their lovely banqueting tables and yurts Spruce was used again to make a solid chunky top again hard wax oil by Treatex to finish and then birch ply to make two shelves which can unbolt with the sides folding in to make a beautiful feature bar which can be easily transported And off it zoomed to take it s place in amongst the party Collapsible Spruce and birch ply bar for Hooes yurts So you see it s not just about the sizable glory pieces

    the site a stunning 40 acre woodland which has the river Exe running through it we realised the biggest challenge would be getting the cabin to it s final destination It was going to the furthest most point on the site and there was no obvious answer We started to think maybe the neighbours would be good enough to let us take the trailer across their field And so after meeting with Ian and local farmer George it was decided that this would be the solution We set a date and worked towards it Thanks to accuweather we soon realised that the date set was looking like a wash out and had to bump the delivery by a further week What a good move this turned out to be the rain was horizontal and the wind was wild definitely not good weather for putting up a cabin The following week though was sunny dry and calm Perfect Supplies had been bought biscuits had been made tents had been packed and the trailer and vans were ready to go At 4am on a Monday morning the boys headed to the workshop checked one last time that they hadn t forgotten anything gave another pull on the ratchet straps and headed off By 8am they were at the meeting point where George lifted everything off with his tractor onto one big trailer and they all trooped across the field where George emptied the load at the closest point to the site The boys then manhandled the load across a stream and set about assembling the structure Sleeping platform and wood burner The site work took 8 days with blissfully good weather Trout were caught canoes paddled and fallen out of fires cooked on The result is a beautiful cabin set in stunning
