Second Firing Cool Down

The kiln is cooling down at the moment. Unloading is scheduled for 3pm tomorrow.
A pretty incredible experience yesterday - Firing took a total of 14 hours. Started up with small pieces of wood at 9am. Hit cone 10 around 3pm. Kept stoking for a couple of hours, added in side stokes around 6:30 pm. Ended around 10 pm. Checked the cooling and fully shut down at 11pm.
This is an incredible kiln that could easily be fired by two people, if everything is prepped ahead of time. We'll have picture of the results tomorrow.
