Staci that looks totally amazing!  What a great finish.
I love your barrel tree. A great way to disguise it during the off season.

I was wondering if you could give a few tidbits of your experiences in regards to some of the things I remember you having problems with over the years and how you solved or lived with them: smoke back, plaster cracking etc. and also things you may change or recommend to others.

Sure thing, Gerry.  Might take a week or so to get it out- but will do!
Thanks!

I managed to read through pretty much this entire thread. You did great work and helped a lot of us along the way! Did you ever figure out what the issue was with smokeback and flames coming back on you?

Hey Staci, I'm just getting to the point of considering plasters and finishes.   Did you end up using boiled linseed oil to seal it?  I'm wondering about the dust from a dried clay plaster?  I'm considering going with lime plaster if I can't work out the details of the clay plaster.  Thanks!
