Turning Again

Juniper Blank

Our weather has warmed to where I can work in my shop again. All winter I have been saving an odd shaped piece of juniper that I was sure would make a stunning bowl.

Blown Apart

I mounted in on the lathe and began roughing it out. My assessment of the grain was right, this was going to be good. Then it came apart. Part of the interior was a limb. The surface had grown together, but not the interior. So is this firewood after all?

Solar Kiln

As promised, here is a picture of my solar kiln. This time, it has withstood some very strong gusts of wood and continues to do a good job drying things out.
