Burning Bright is based on a late 19th century coal burning parlor stove. It is 38 inches tall and and 13 inches wide. It is comprised of 878 seperate pieces of alder and oak held together with Titebond II. The alder was purchased in boxes of kindling from the local hardware store and the oak was given to me by my brother. I used Minwax Dark Walnut on the body of the stove and Minwax Golden Oak on the oak trim. This has been an extraordinarily fun project and gave me very few problems as I built and turned it. Hope you enjoy it, but be advised, it will only work properly once.

Wow, another outstanding turning job. Glad to see your putting that oak to good use. I’m curious what you will come up with next.

Very beautiful and large segmented turning, and a nice looking stove to boot. It would not take too much to
wire it with some led or special effect lights and have it burnining bright, with all those openings it could be
interesting. Thank you for sharing.
