This is the COOLEST! And I agree, it is ironic. I have no idea what prompts people to do some of the things they do, but I’m glad you and your dad did this. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of those pictures you mentioned. Great job, thanks for sharing.

Is this for cutting firewood for your “wooden” stove?

Seriously, that is a nifty piece of craftsmanship.
