Making Charcoal with the Exeter Retort

by WoodlandsTV ~ 6 February, 2017 ~ 28 comments

Alan and Jo Waters are expert charcoal makers with many years experience of this traditional skill from the land they coppice. Here they speak about the benefits of charcoal production using the Exeter Retort. They join with Geoff Self and Robin Rawle, designers and manufacturers of this Retort, to explain their experiences of the benefits of this method compared to traditional ring kilns – that the Retort produces more charcoal, that it has a shorter burn time, is cleaner, more efficient, easily accessible and transportable, and that it ultimately produces better quality charcoal – ideal for small woodland owners. wildwoodcoppice@btinternet.com http://www.carboncompost.co.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Hedge Laying: South of England Style

by WoodlandsTV ~ 28 December, 2016 ~ 5 comments

Here at Bentley Woodfair we see members of the South of England Hedge Laying Society (Chris Burchell Collins, Gary Moore and Frank Wright) demonstrate their skill using hazel to lay a hedge in the particular `South of England` style – with its specific use of `binders` to lock the hedge down tightly. They talk us through the traditional tools and techniques they adopt to ensure a permanent, solid, stock-proof, living hedge that will last for hundreds of years. http://sehls.weebly.com/ http://www.bentley.org.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Making a Dugout Canoe

by WoodlandsTV ~ 12 October, 2016 ~ 14 comments

Artistic woodworker Arthur de Mowbray puts real heart into his craft as he shares his obvious skill and enthusiasm for designing and building a contemporary leisure boat from available timbers. He talks us through the making of `The Mighty Sparrow`, from a fourteen foot long poplar log. Arthur takes traditional boat-building methods and adapts them to suit the lighter, smaller poplar – whilst still using oak off-cuts for specific structural items. From cutting, carving, stretching and stabilising – to `wearing` the beautiful finished boat – Arthur `s respect for the wood and for his craft is clear. http://www.arthurdemowbray.co.uk/dugout-canoes.
