Default Making Room For Pyrography

This is a shot of my tiny little office with the picture taken through the doorway.
The 28 gallon fish tank is on a heavy duty roughly built stand that I made for it a few years ago from odds and ends. .

I am giving the fish tank and all its paraphernalia to one of my sons who is visiting here for Christmas from Alberta but I am keeping the stand. He will be taking it home day after Christmas. The stand is sixteen inches by three feet . I might put a better top on it and that will be loads of room for doing pyrography..

I have not been dong any burning lately. Mostly reading up on it and doing honey-do stuff before Christmas . Will get back at it in the next week or so.

Hi Gary .
As mentioned in the message before this one, I will be doing it in the space where the fish tank was. My son just now left to go back to Alberta with the fish tank and all the supplies. Now I will put a new top on the stand the tank was on.
My shop is closed down for the winter months because of rising costs to heat it.

Hi William,

Just took a peek at your link. WOW!! Beautiful work. I really liked the portrait you did of "The Duke".

Yes , I can burn wood . I heat my whole house with an air tight wood heater .
I have no room at all for a wood stove in my shop and the regulations are very strict in BC for heating with wood. Has to be regulation stove, regulation chinmey with Lots of clearance (measured) from all sides and inspected and a permit obtained (at a cost of course ) or no insurance. They are carrying this green environment crap way to far for my liking.
I have a 4800watt construction heater hanging on chains from the ceiling because of no floor space for a heater and the price of electricty has doubled here in recent years. We are getting taxed to death in BC because of the billions of dollars of cost over runs for the 2010 Olymics coming here .
Wish they had held it in some other country.

I made a pile of those Duke portraits in wood as well as ones of other personalities when I was doing a lot of fretwork on my scroll saw along with a few hundred clocks. Like all things I reached a saturation point for fretwork items for my area . That is why I started into turning and I enjoy it a lot more than scroll sawing . There is a never ending list of nice useful things that can be made on a wood lathe. Many of them just from pieces of wood from the firewood pile. Will be back on the lathe in the spring when it warms up . For now I am trying my hand at pyrography for the coldest winter months.

The fish aquarium now has a new home . I put a new 22" x 44" MDF top on the stand and gave it a prime coat and a finish coat of white paint.

Started tracing a pattern late this afternoon after mounting 2' florescent light above it underneath a shelf.

Figured I better take a picture because this is probably about as clean and uncluttered as it's going to get . .lol . .

Hi Bill: Checked out your website & you do very nice work. I love the turnings with the different colored woods. I have a friend that makes salt & peper shakers in the same fashion & people love them!

Thanks Steve.
Those multi colored wood items do take extra time but they sell good. I am right out of pepper mills again and need to order hardware to make more.
I have not been doing much pyrography but as soon as the cold weather arrives again I will get back at it although the one with the hummingbirds sold real quick and I should replace that one.
