    We have different pine here in California, but it acts the same way. Most of my feather sticks on drier pine end up just being shavings, but that's ok too.

    I don't think it's you, it is more likely the wood!

    Pittsburgh had a sad weekend, so in hindsight, this little session was meditation more than anything else. Probably-but-not-certainly-a-maple with a Yakut:
