Hi all - I'm looking for someone in the Dublin, Ireland, area to mill some old beech boards for my brother.

I'm a woodworker, but I've lived in Los Angeles since for ever, and I don't know anything about the woodworking seen in Europe.

The two boards are about 45" long, 13" wide, and far as I remember about 1 1/4" thick. They sat around in a farmyard shed for decades, and have been in a suburban garage for several years now. The surfaces are interestingly discolored, but they are sound, and have no embedded grit, and are not too far from being flat.

Each board has a live edge, and my brother suggested they could be married to be a coffee table.

Anyone know someone who could run them across a jointer and then thru a planer?

thanks, Mark

He will need to find a wood supplier in his area that has the equipment or a wood working company to see if they are prepared to do it. Most will not touch wood from unknown sources as they will not want to find any nails and the like in it. If someone is prepared to machine it then they may charge a small fortune for time and wear and tear on the machine. The other choice will be to plane it by hand which can be a long job
