      My daughter and her partner were out for a drive during the week and found a roadside stand selling bags of seasoned firewood at 3 for a tenner. The bags appear to be mainly beech, with some oak and at least one piece of birch.
      I am always on the look-out for new sources of cheap timber and see no good reason for turning my nose up at what someone else would put in a wood burner.
      All of the timber is neatly cut into stove lengths.
      I don’t have video facilities, which is probably just as well. No-one wants to look at my ugly mug after all. This is my attempt at a Youtube challenge, which is enigmatically named “the bangle bowl challenge.”
      An oaken bangle, turned from firewood, and finished with shellac based friction polish.

      Standing up showing end-grain

      I do hate waste.
      I think I will enjoy the rest of this firewood.
