Whilst walking the over day through My local woods we came across a really old Oak tree, the bark had peeled off and a sudden moment of inspiration hit me..
Why buy Cork Bark when good old English Oak might work just as well.
As you see below the Bark has a fabulous texture and once cut should make for some imposing cliffs. I'll leave it to dry for a few weeks before I start to cut it up and once cut I'll blast the pieces in the microwave to kill off any nasties....
We managed to secure quite a few pieces...much to the amusement of my wife.
If interested in seeing how these might turn out head over to this link where I built a small rocky outcrop using cork bark
