    What kind of forge, Scotty? I just sold an antique hand-cranked forge last month that I had picked up years ago to pour Babbitt bearings.

    Very nice Scotty. Every homeowner should have a forge >> How long did it take to strip the bark off with that new-fangleddevice?

    When I was a young lad I visited Old Fort William up in Thunder Bay, donned some pioneer era clothes and made a river paddle with a draw knife. Seems to me that would work well in this case too.

    That's my buddy Joe's forge. I have a small farriers forge that needs fire clay and a shroud, someday. I wish I knew you had one, I would have considered buying it....

    Only took a couple minutes to remove the bark, that spud is pretty slick. I can see me using it often in the future....

    How would firewood dry in that solar kiln?

    No idea, and we'll probably never find out. We're both 4+ years ahead on firewood.
