From Graves to the Cradle

A tree fell in the forest. To be specific, an American Red Pine, the last of four planted in 1900 to mark the boundaries of the Jamieson Cemetery.

Good furniture timber, according to Wikipedia: it seemed a pity to leave it to rot.

So Grant and I salvaged it and milled it and seasoned it for four years and last week we used it to build a Chardonnay barrel-rack to complement our existing Redgum Pinot barrel-rack.

Those of you who have visited us may notice the cellar looks a bit different and a lot tidier.
