Making a Dugout Canoe

by WoodlandsTV ~ 12 October, 2016 ~ 13 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.

Restoring an Arboretum

by WoodlandsTV ~ 27 January, 2016 ~ 7 comments

We hear from Rebecca Cork who is heading up a conservation project to restore a historically and culturally rich arboretum for community use. The arboretum was first designed and planted in the 19th century and enjoys over 300 rare and champion trees - including one of the most varied collections of oaks in the UK. With the fantastic support of volunteers, woodland experts and local historians, Bec is keen to learn from this unusual ecosystem - allowing the environment to guide the renovation process. http://tortwortharboretum.org An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv
