Im starting to get the urge to get back in the shop. Been trying to get everything ready to start back on the speedster project. I have till the day after Thanksgiving. Then Dad goes "off grid" till springtime. :-) I cleaned out the wood stove and have almost enough wood to last till spring. The oxygen/acetylene, and Mig CO2 bottles are full, Been steadily ordering from the vendors for all the parts I think Ill need, "happy days are almost here again" If you look closely you can see the "old girl" sitting inside the back door of the shop waiting for me to return. For those not sick of the speedster project, pictures and a real update to follow soon.

Patiently waiting.

Those are some awful big chunks. Don't you split them more than that?

What Wayne said goes for me too.

Steve, perhaps Donnie works on the same theory I do, the bigger the chunk, the slower the burn. Our eucalypt hardwoods need to be dry as chips to burn well, but when they are, the bigger pieces will burn longer.

Steve, I thought I had split it too small. I split the wood for the shop a lot smaller than I do for the wood furnace that heats the main house. My rule is "if I can pick it up, and it will fit thru the stove door, that is good enough" :-)

I have been looking forward to your winter Speedster updates as well.

Looking forward to them as well. Build series as well as drive videos are how I get my fix :-)

Back in the 70's-80's I had a Greenwood (eagle model) wood stove. It would take 4 foot by 15" diameter green logs. The stove was lined with refractory plates inside making it burn so hot there wasn't any creosote build up. Made the prep time for the 8 cords we went through each season a breeze :-)

I'm not sure how to tell when it's winter project season here in Florida. My T project will be to raise the ceiling in my workshop by nine inches. There is less then one inch of clearance between the top of the T and the ceiling. If it wasn't the improved car, I'd have to put the top down to get it in.
