What It’s All About

I walked by the wood stove today and something captivated me.

Yes, most of my blog posts are about sharpening chainsaws, cutting firewood, splitting firewood and stacking firewood.  But that’s just a means to and end.

The reason I do all the work is for what you see in the picture above.

What do I see?

  1. Self Sufficiency.  A wood stove heating a house with no reliance on big oil, big gas or big electricity.
  2. A clothes dryer.
  3. A clothes warmer.  Have you ever put on a coat or pair of shoes that was lying in front of a wood stove.  No matter how cold it is outside you carry that heat with you while transitioning from indoors to out.
  4. A peaceful place.  Who doesn’t relax when seated in front of a fire?

What do you see when you look at a wood stove?


Cedar Fence Beginnings

I got my first 6 boards up on my cedar fence today.  Woo hoo!

Those boards are rough sawn from a cedar log with my Logosol Big Mill Basic and cut to length and dog eared with my new Hitachi 10″ Miter Saw.  The miter saw made cutting the fence a lot of fun and I have no regrets on the purchase.

I’ve still got video to film of making this fence to stay tuned to the CTScaper YouTube Channel.
