Gotta get some beauty pics in here, somewhere, ya?
During my grandparents renovation, they found this- I honestly have no clue. One side is sorta redish, Grandma thinks it might be mahogany, but this side is greenish- I'm thinking it might be poplar. It feels like poplar, anyhow.
All of this may be barely intelligible. Midnight blogging continues to be a theme here under the Twin Maples.
So, besides the cherry box, organizing the shed and just general day-to-day life, I'm working on rearranging the forge and firepit; Moved the firepit over to the forge, restructured the forge, making raised beds in the old pit.
Also working on the pipe to the forge for bellows or box bellows; Mark two inch (Ya, should be 3" or 4", restricted by materials) circle on basswood, carve roughly with saws and a tiny crappy gouge, done.
Ain't she pretty? Well, drink enough...maybe.
I'll clean er' up once it's glued back together. Once I get the funds I should get a rasp.
Now for the clay portion. That was harder. My 53 pounds of clay came today, pretty nice, ordered steel as well to get the free shipping. Steel hasn't arrived yet. Dug the pit for the firing, gotta make lots of shavings for that, right now this clay tuyere is air drying.
Don't worry, the heater won't be on when I am not in the shed.
Can you tell? The whole shed is being organized, going through everything. The last year has given me enough material to write a country song. My family's old dog, Molly, died this week as well.
Gotta make one area of my life nice, then it should spread, ya?
