During our renovations of our home here in Ireland, we had to take out some dead trees that would have been a danger to the house structure if they fell down… David who was instructed by his father on the art of tree felling (The Colour of Life – Work on a Timber Gang 1942 has always undertaken our tree felling.. this time it required not just the removal of several 30 foot trees but also necessitated the digging of six feet trenches to get the old roots out. He was as fit as a flea that first summer! And he is currently landscaping and leveling the garden so he is pretty fit this summer too….
My father-in-law Geoff Cronin apart from being a wonderful storyteller, was also a master wood turner, and if he had still been able I am sure he would have turned these discarded stumps into something beautiful. We are lucky to have been gifted some pieces that we treasure.
Here is an example of some of his work which was in high demand.
