Time to get the wood stove ready for winter. We have a high-efficiency wood stove and need to sweep the chimney of creosote and clean the ash buildup inside the stove. This year we tested a new chimney brush and flexible rod kit along with an ash vacuum by shop-vac. We also made fire starter bags from chainsaw wood curls. And we highlighted a wood stove fan by EcoFan.
For my Timber Frame Style Woodshed project and Garden Pavilion Build, I used this jigsaw to cut curved profiles in the ends of 6″ x 6″ beams and in rafters. This Bosch Jigsaw model JS470EB review demonstrates the capabilities of this tool and it’s put to the test cutting heavy timbers.
