    I Need A New Fridge

    I have started to rough out the walnut that I got a couple of weeks ago and I still have a long way to go. I still have to get most of the wood but my "helper" with the truck and the trailer is busy till later this week.

    In the first load in my kiln I have walnut, cherry and some oak burl.

    Thanks for lookin.

    I think that it is not defrosting correctly!

    I like it! I have wanted to make one for a long time -- might just do it now..

    That's some sweet-looking wood, Pete. Looking forward to seeing the final results.

    Wow, that is a lot of work in that fridge. Great idea. Maybe some words on how it was made.

    That's pretty neat there Pete... I've saved plans to make a kiln from a fridge or freezer, but the wife won't let me take the one from the kitchen..

    on our drive into Walmart there's a place where I see two freezers thrown out beside the road... I've thought several times about stopping and seeing if I could get one of them for a kiln...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Ted Sokolowski uses one for his peppermill blanks, but it's a smaller fridge. I think he uses a 90w bulb with a pie pan reflector and an oven thermometer, I think he put a little fan in there for circulation. Now I gotta watch the DVD again
