I get the fuel to fire my pots at a saw mill in the southern part of our county. Every Friday I drive to the Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison. On the way back I often stop at Satterwhite log homes and go through their waste wood pile for wood that will work well for burning my potsI get the wood at a fire wood price. Often there are boards, beams and the like that would actually make good lumber. So I bring thosth home and set them aside. Recently I realized I had enough to start a building project so I began putting up a storage shed out behind the pottery made of junk wood. It e=will be a place where I can store my junk.

Here is the shed so far. I have hired a friend to work with me so the shed will go up quickly. I will get he whole shed built with waste wood costing under $60. The cement for the footers was more than that.

Meanwhile back at the ranch I was finishing yesterday’s butter pots and mugs.

Lee and I are slowly making our way through the orchard while it is still winter and the trees are dormant.
