    No kidding, Alan.......my very first thought was this photo was taken inside a space capsule! :D

    You are a good example of the technical possibilities associated with woodturning these days......

    Sure. We'd be gaining a mini-max and a Robust and our Tormak would appreciate some company.

    Plus, you could use a few more lathes Al. I mean, you only have 5 or so there.

    :D

    That amount of space, machinery and cleanliness is just.....obscene!
    And I'm jealous.

    I've only read this far in this monstrous thread, so forgive if I'm repeating but I have a pellet stove and just love it. Once it's started, there's no open flame. Even if I have to refuel, there's no open flame. Can't afford to heat shop with electric, and the Island has no natural gas.I got the stove used for $425, pellets run me about $50/mo. Drafty shop, 425 sq. ft., keep it about 60-62 degrees. Big expense was the chimney, put in several years ago for a different stove. Also, clearance for a pellet stove is much less than for a regular wood burner.

    There is an old line that says... "If you are going to open the kimono, make sure you are fit"
    I loosen the kimono from time to time, but I am a shy, demure creature at heart.

    My kimono seems to be getting smaller ... At least, that's the only explanation that I'm willing to acknowledge.

    It could be that the top button of your kimono was left open and you're packing a pile of shavings in there. Just a theory. ;)

    Now......that's a creative excuse I'll tuck away in the back of my mind, for future use! :D

    This thread has been fun........but, I'm thinking I might have to go out and take a photo in my shop of something I haven't shown before.......(thinking) :rolleyes:

    Tom,

    The turnings we do are typically small items, so the "shavings" are pretty manageable. The same cannot be said for lots of tools strewn around the shop that have yet to be returned to their normal resting places.

    Here's a little photo of me turning some pink dyed stabilized burl for a run of shaving brushes we made. There's a nice Thompson spindle roughing gouge under there somewhere.
