My local timbers come from a variety of sources but two of the most significant are through Jon Sowden of Fallen and Found and Alex and Rebecca at BearWood both of whom offer excellent services including mobile sawmilling. Should you ever need to have a tree taken down look them up and there’s a possibility that somewhere down the line it will be reborn as an A.S. Potter guitar.
