Working with Sweet Chestnut

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Tim Roskell demonstrates his green woodworking skills here at The Royal Bath & West Show. He shows us how to use various tools - such as the froe, side axe and draw knife - as he splits and cleans a length of coppiced sweet chestnut. Tim explains how this is one of the most durable of woods with its high tannin levels and low sapwood/high heartwood content - and reveals the potential benefits of a woodworking lifestyle.
