//Same procedure every year: In autumn we would buy the hornbeam…

Every autumn we are back in time: we buy the white beech for our tools. With a traditional sawmill in southern Germany every single screed is viewed and measured. The wood was cut this summer according to our measurements and quality specifications. The Wood was delivered by truck. The white beech is now carefully stacked and pre-dried in our covered outer storey.
At the earliest next year, we will cut the white beech into pits, then store it in our drying room to the desired residual moisture.
Again a few months later, the original Planks will become plane soles, Rabbet Planes, Marking Gauges, Measuring Tools of the quality brand E.C.E. – We think: the tree would be a bit proud of this second life.
