Quick tour of the Kiln V.2. It’s not huge but as you can see from the pictures I can dry quite a few bowls. As far as materials go I got the box out of a dumpster. The plugs and switch for the lights were left over from a home improvement project. The ventilation fan I got out of an old computer. I did have to buy a light fixture. So if you count the switches and light fixture I am all in about 25-30$ not to bad. Temperature control is achieved by switching out wattage in the lightbulbs. So far on these large bowls I can go from 20 to 25% moisture to 5 to 8% in about 2.5 to 3 months. Really helps speed up the process seeing as my shop 3 to 4 months of year runs about 40°. With two 100 W lightbulbs I can keep the kiln at about 95 to 100° which seems to be about perfect. Any questions let me know. #woodworkers #makersmovement #handmade #woodart #woodturning #dyi #woodkilns #woodkiln
Vision Wood samples are on the move, so you better come by and get yours! Here we have a gorgeous sample of Antique Heart Pine flooring and paneling.
Homage to the white ash, Fraxinus Americanus. A great tree species soon to never be seen again, due to the emerald ash borer, an invasive species from Asia killing off the white ash population. The emerald ash borer has no natural predators in the America's and the white ash can not defend against it. Going the way of the American elm and the American chestnut. What tree species will be next? I am collecting as much as I can. This bowl has been lightly died to enhance the grain. More ash turnings to come.
Easy like Sunday morning ☀️
As promised, here are some photos of the desk finished up. I really enjoyed this project. When my mom comes to town, she needs somewhere to work on her laptop, this space should be perfect for her.
Thank you to @urbanshopworks

Almost finished with this beauty.
