A Southern Gentleman




Here is a pic of my Saturday stoking partner Mississippi Ernie
Gentry stoking the kiln. Ernie has no investment in the kiln and yet he has signed up for a 6 hour shift of hard labour. The double wide is more than a two person kiln and my fellow students have signed up to help Denny,Heidi and me fire off a kiln of our work. Last night I drove Ernie home and thanked him for his help. He said I am invested in my fellow class mates. Enuff said, Ernie and thanx to all that are helping. I am indebted!!!
Here is some cottonwood that was split for the sidestokes. We also have 2 x6"s to sidestoke. I like putting thru the wood with bark on it in lieu of the nude wood.

Splitting cottonwood is an art in its self. It looks like you have some good help. Good Fires!!
