Thread: Two stories

  1. #1

    Two stories

    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

    Different view

    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

    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    OK, would you care to restate that?

    BTW, cute mini bowl.

    One for each day of the week.

    Of course I intended to say many bottomless bowls and not many wives.

    One wife is more than enough for an old man like me.

    It looks like that little piece of walnut really wanted to go back to the burn pile. Your fix (maple, I'm guessing) put an end to that, huh?

    I am pretty sure what the LOYL would say, you can have one for each day as long as it's me.
