Free Hardwood? Yes please! Salvaging & Milling Timber

In this video I salvage some wood from some hardwood window frames and doors.  There was a real mixture of solid timber, laminated and fingerjointed staves of hardwood and face veneers, but well worth the effort!  Free wood is the best kind of wood. I'm not sure what species of wood these are, there's probably some meranti and mahogany in there among others...  This wood will be used to build a rocking chair for the Karl Pope Woodcraft Build A Chair Challenge on 5th December.

In this video I'm going to talk about how I package and send large items within the UK and internationally too.  I know that sounds really boring, but I do this quite often so I've got some good tips which I think are worth sharing, and I've seen a few people asking about this in woodworking groups and forums.
