Carpinus betulus Part seasoned
All dimensions shown are in inches (diameter x thickness).
We almost never mill hornbeam as a special use timber but leave the logs in the weeds and wait for the fungi and bacteria to set about naturally re-cycling it.
The trick is catching it at the right stage. Where say, beech will spalt in one to three years, hornbeam usually needs just one summer and we have got it right with this batch.
The markings will vary greatly, from fine lines as is common with most timbers but also, wide, dark brown lines can also be present, speckling too in some blanks.
