    Hey, Jim, with the price of fuel oil, natural gas and propane, those bags of coal may not be such a bad gift after all.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

      Actually Jim,
      People do carve coal; and have been for about 7000 years.
      Good luck with yours.

        Re: what do you do with.......

        Trade it to a guy who has a coal-fired forge so he can make you some tools. When I built a coal forge out of a truck brake drum, I had such a hard time finding a reliable source of good coal that I gave the forge to my neighbor's boy, who still has it. Soon afterward, I lucked into a propane forge, but there are still some good coal fired ones around.

        I'd consider myself lucky to get coal for Christmas - some poor guys end up with new socks! Makes you wonder how good they were all year...

        Hey Rick, I got a couple of straight razors lately and I'm following your tutorial. Thanks much for the info!

                Twelve socks full of coal .....hummm .......twelve months of bad behavior!!!??? Someone is trying to tell you something. Coal is a valuable commodity, still a few people burning it, and fewer still carving it. But it can be carved! Not that I'd want to.

                Better start being nice for next Christmas! LOL

                    Jim...if you just sit around squeezing a lump of that coal, eventually it will turn into a diamond............wait for it!
