    I got pics, so I'll just keep posting them until everyone is sick of them. More to follow- a friend came over and took good shots.

    Following pics taken last night by my friend Heather. More of the same, but they're sort of like sunset pics I think

    Me doing my super-villain impression. Notice the flame/kiln interior color in the other photos- the light can damage your eyes. I get a "tan" of sorts when I fire.

    Thanks bud. Good to "see" you here. Was thinking of you a bit this weekend- I did the whole firing myself this time with a few visitors, so it gets to be a time to meditate.

    dT- fire. I'll work with that. I still think that fire is a fad and will go the way of leg warmers.

    honestly, my nostril hairs, eyelashes, and eyebrows all got just a little trim. I could smell burnt hair half the day. That firebox design is pretty cool- when it's loaded up some times you can put your hand on the top of the wood charge. Many wood kilns will ignite your clothes if you stand in front for more than a few seconds. Always wear natural fibers!!

    That is some great stuff there. Do you use a blower of some sort to increase oxygen and bring up the temperature, or is the simply the volume of wood that does it?

    Keep the pics coming. This is something not seen everyday by most people. Fire in a different use other than stoves... nice.

    Outstanding stuff. Too much to even comment on.

    In that second pic on the right hand side, that wouldn't be a steamer pot lid, would it?? :cheese:

    Edit: and that boiler plate flask is just too Kewl.

    Great stuff. This might sound strange, but it looks like you, or least the image I have after reading your posts for a couple years now.
