    I think I could squeeze this in under the definition of "art". It's not particularly rare, nor valuable, but I am the original owner and I think it's a good time all around.

    Woodturning used to be my hobby and then my profession (by necessity) for number of years.

    Very cool coaly. I really like the early steam tractors, I watch them on Youtube once in a while.

    That was a great story, I would love to have had such an adventure, but I would never take such a chance. I have to "play it safe", but I don't have any good stories.<>

    I do a lot of woodworking projects as my hobby. Here are a couple larger butcher blocks I made awhile ago...

    The first one is birch "tile" with mahogany "grout" and the second is Maple, wrapped with Mahogany, wrapped with Cherry. Enjoy!

    project 240. You built those from scratch? First. Very, very friggin nice. I wish I could inspect them in person. Second. I am guessing you are retired? You have a lot of time to dedicate to your craft? Or you are some kind of futuristic, wood working alien freakanoid. Give it up. Which is it? Oh, I better add this. ;lol

    Gasifier, yes, built from scratch. Actually the mahogany in both of them is reclaimed wood from a deck I helped tear apart.

    I've still got about 30-40 years to go until retirement, hopefully less, lol... I'm in my 20s...

    Really nice job there project240. I like how you used the grain standing up for durability. It reminds me of an old warehouse doing work with a plumber friend of mine. The whole floor was oak blocks on end. It was quite a floor, pre-concrete days, brick probably would have crumbled under the weight of whatever was moved through there..

    Project 240, that is awesome!

    Those old block floors are great. I spent a few days on a movie shoot in an old ship yard in Brooklyn that has that flooring. It is so much easier on the feet than concrete! Another good thing about it is that machinery dropped on that floor is less likely to be damaged than on concrete.

    project240. You are a very talented young man. With that talent and work ethic you will do very well in life. Nice work man. And keep those pictures coming of your completed projects. We love pics here!

    Oh. So you are not retired. And at that age you must work a full time job. So that means you aaaare a futuristic, wood working alien freakanoid. ;lol
    (That is a sincere compliment of your wood working ability. ;) )

    Wes- from scratch? That's impressive. Played a little PB myself.

    I'm firing the kiln a bit every night to build up ash up top and to dry out/get ready to rock it this weekend. Here's a pic looking into the firebox- I put a little porcelain conjoined skulls sculpture in the throat (where the fire enters the ware chamber). This will be buried a foot deep in coals/ash this weekend and if it survives will be nasty and crusty when finished.
