    Looks like a great job Ken It's sure going to be nice to work in a toasty shop

    I've been toying with the idea of putting one in my garage, Or maybe a pellet stove. Basically to keep the cars warm at night and to hopefully make the family room which is connected to the garage a bit warmer. It's freezing in the winter in there.

    time to fire that thing up this winter and part with some of your shorts.
    I had to separate my shorts today, and it was painful tossing so many 6 inch or less pieces. Just cant store them forever.
    Saw your shop pics, nice shop, your mitre setup with the other machines sliding in and out is very similar to my setup.

    Bite your tongue Ken!
    Just 'cause summer is wrapping up, we don't need no stink'in winter!
    I just started the last couple of days (since it was cooler) splittin me wood for winter. Only have about 20 more loads to go.
    Oh, I also need to buy another 25 round bales of hay for the cows and about 15 ton of hay for the horses.
    At least I got the new water pump on the Oliver and it is running great and will be ready to move snow.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Luv's me sum fall & winter...take it year round if'n I could.

    I hear you on getting the wood together, I've only got three cord{face} at the moment, neighbor has another dead standing good sized elm? ...we burn wood in the house as well, but mainly as a supplement...wifey loves to watch it roar....with the damper wide open ....and I've got two dogs who probably eat as much as your herd{s}
