Smoke firing heaven

Its remarkable how difficult it is to get hold of sawdust, especially sawdust which is free of MDF and other glued wood. I had been rationing supplies a bit, which is an issue with all the experiments that are needed. So when Arch Joinery contacted me out of the blue asking if I wanted any, it was like a gift. The first load turned up the other day, and its perfect. Its copious, light and airy and dry. It burns about as hot as you want it and its free if you pick it up yourself. This smoke firing potter can't believe her luck. I got this lot delivered to me, and I think the delivery driver thought I had gone nuts. He had never seen anyone looking so delighted at receiving 8 bags of waste product. I am still in smoke firing heaven.
