My Inner Sanctum
« on: April 16, 2018, 09:04:39 am »
I should have taken before photos. picture stuff leaning against every cabinet & toolbox & the floor being cluttered. the workbench surfaces had not seen daylight in at least a year. I've been lowering the blade & putting a piece of Masonite on top of the table saw & using it for a work surface.

Wow beautiful woodstove!   Having that in the same room I had my saws and other woodworking equipment would be BAD, very bad! I am occasionally ankle deep in sawdust!

Thanks for the tour, Rober.

Never seen that particular stove pattern before. It's beautiful.

the stove is a buck's gem #28. buck stoves were made in st louis. I bought this at a farm auction in berger mo around 1975 for $40.00. I've seen 2 others online but never 1 in the flesh. it's a dandy. I consider it to be a work of  functional art. this summer it will get a good cleaning & a coat of stove polish. here it is april 16th & I had a fire going. did anyone noticed the 1948 Gibson on the bench? it's getting some extensive work done to it.
lazy- I made about 3 drums worth of sawdust in the last 10 days. I blow the sawdust off of the stove & keep flammables far enough away. it is a worry but I keep my guard up.
