This photo journey started with two stories and turned into three.
I heat my shop with a wood burning stove.
The stove heats my shop but is a pain in the back it get going.
I would rather just flip a switch.
I hate to burn good wood and as I was going through my kindling bucket and found a block of walnut..... for the record I have so much black walnut that it is in the way. but I could not waste it.
This is the small block (2 small blocks)
Block mounted and getting round.
Block hollowed out and looking good.
sanded and some finished applied
Mylands friction polish -- I am liking the shape and finish.
Size reference -- for the Metric users--
Jammed and turning the tenon off and "OH" no no no.
a fix and then gave the mess to my wife (one of many) for her craft stash room.
sad day but this happens to me many times.
Story one -- How I heat my shop
Story two -- turning a small bowl from my burning pile
Story three -- my "OH NO" day
