cherry for plates and cedar in the home-made kiln for the bath tub!

This is Jack. He is a local wood turner I met @ x-mas craft fair, and he is going to make the plates
this is the piece of cedar I bought. It came from a tree some where right around this area. It is 3" thicj, by 9 5/8th" wide and six-ish feet long.
Ayer yo fui al la Farmington a comprara la medera de cerezo a hacer platos para la cabana!

Old rusty stuff. this metal was made to survive, like plastic. I wonder if we will display all the old drinking straws and single use creamer cups in the future, when that stuff is still around
Landus took me inside the wood drying kiln he and Richard made to dry out lumber they re-claim and want to work with in the near future. I knew from my time living with wood heat that wood needs to sit for @ least a year to dry before it will burn well. The same is true for lumber a person wants to build with.. it needs to have time to dry and set itself in place, so that the object you make will not warp over time as the grain of the wood contracts as it drys
They even made the hinges! This is the answer to my ?? of how to install the two back doors of the utility closet.

pile o wood, all reclaimed urban lumber
my cedar came out of somebodies yard... down in a ditch...fallen in a winter storm more than a year ago... see the tree?
pile o wood, all reclaimed urban lumber: our four cedar board on the top. the fans draw the warm air up and over the tent like roof hanging above the wood. the air meets to doors, which are heavy and well insulated, and then falls down around the wood. The pile is inside a circulating current of warm air, with occasional added moisture to help the wood keep it's shape and not dry out too fast.
the water sprayer just to give the wood a little moisture while it dried, and "help it relax"
