    Well I'd have to cut a small piece off or scavenge for a dropped branch for the wood required. But I really don't want to harm the tree in any way so what is the smallest amount that you'd need?

    Also, once acquired how long would the piece of yew wood take to cure? If it's years then I guess it's a no go.

    Here's a couple of photos of the magnificent tree:

    It'll be a big fuck yew if it takes years to cure!

    Have vaped beneath its jade canopy many a summer day :ko::leaf:

    Wonder what it would say if it could speak? It would have been around when the romans came to Britain!

    ...would probably ask me to pass the vape! :lol:

    I think it would say something along the lines of: "Ah I see you've met my cousin herbie" :D

    Don't cut *anything* off that tree!

    It would be scumbag-makes-the-local-news levels of wrong.

    I would never harm the tree! I love it.

    I was just thinking that if I can't find any dropped timber then pollarding a bit from a branch wouldn't harm it...

    Could even ask the Forrest commission (or FC if you will ;)) when they trim it (which they do) for some of the cuttings.

    But tbh I don't even know how much Nick would need and it may not be possible. It's probably just a fanciful thought.

    If you find it offensive to pollard wood from a tree you have seen, but have no problem with cutting a tree down completely and using that timber, then you are like a meat eater who is happy to buy plastic wrapped chickens so long as they don't look like animals... :2c:

    Man I don't care that much, but the headline "Yob Vandalizes Celebrated Local Tree to Make Drug Pipe" writes itself. Ask first for sure imho. Either way, no offence meant.

    No stress, no offence taken. It's worth clarifying I'm not planning on cutting the gentle giant down! I'll definitely ask first and see if there are any cuttings the Forestry Commission can leave me when they pollard next.

    It's actually pretty neglected, it's out of the way and no one really visits it. Hence why I can lay under it and get vaked on a sunny day without any worry of being disturbed.

    Would just be nice to have a little piece of it (taken in a sustainable manner) so I'll always remember those warm sunny days if I'm ever in a position where I cannot visit it.

    See if they have any they have trimmed the last few years I bet some is lying around somewhere in a pile unless they chuck it on the firewood pile :o

    I would need a blank around 50-70mm diameter for a log but smaller pieces can be used for stems and wongs would be amazing if they had some still from trimming it...

    I bet there is some interesting grain going on in that wood...

    Nice man glad you are getting along with it, looked like nice thick hits too, like the water piece I have an orbiter very similar...

    Wonderful video! A couple questions.

    What song is that in the video and how do you like the sneakypete gobe?

    The HGL looks great too.

    It's actually wood and it came from HGL. I'm really enjoying the globe. I've been pleasantly surprised by how much I like it, actually. Only issue is that it can be a little tippy. I might need to resolve that.

    Those are gorgeous. I am really liking the shape of the small one. Are these with the new screens?

    The black one looks like a large pawn, can you make me an entire chess set? The castle/rooks will look awesome! Not sure sure how you'd do the knights though :shrug:

    Bigger than this, but keeping a more "boxy" design should allow for a horse styled knight to work. I love the idea of a chess set made from logs!

    @RastaVapa love all three but I think the second one, stripped, is my favorite of those three. Beautiful work!

    Oh man, it is totally doable, and use induction charging to power them, and fill each piece up so that when it's knocked off the board the opponent have to take a hit. And...and... we can have a WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP @RastaVapa CHESS TOURNAMENT, let the games begin :lmao:
