    Firing up the kiln this weekend, so I called the wood dude for some wood, dude. This is slab stuff- I get pine at $50/cord and hardwood for $100 delivered which in terms of time investment is a steal.

    Usually 2 guys show up in a truck- the passenger is always drinking a beer. This time- 2 trucks, and they brought wives. Everyone pokes through pottery I have sitting on my well- seconds and cracked stuff- and I let them take away a few things that make the ladies smile. I like to think the whole episode got someone laid.

    So I'll be finished loading the beast tonight, do a warmup fire tonight, slowly toast all day tomorrow, then on Sunday it's off to the races, holding at 2300F for maybe 10 hours and topping off at about 2370F. Maybe I should go stretch now.

    AP, sounds like what the sugaring folks do around here.
    No one fires the pans at a gazillion degrees though. :lol:
    More pics please, or vids if you can spare the time away from the process. I knew a couple many moons ago who did the pottery thing (worked w/the husband), but they sure as heck didn't have that big ol' kiln like you have.

    I don't have real video capability. I had thought about a kiln cam so you could see me scratch my arse in real time waiting for the next stoke.
