Hello Global Tribe of PhyreKeepers (GTOP)!

09/10/2021 – Welcome to Phyre Dojo’s 47th Phyre Phryday Vlog.

So, I’m trying to get my momentum back.

To start, Phyre Dojo shows you how to MILL 2 Half-Rounds of a tree that I had to take down due to BLACK KNOT FUNGUS (Dibotryon Morbosum), into Boards. This Video is PART 1 which deals with the MILLING of the wood. PART 2 will deal with the creation of turning them into an (ED) Egyptian Dill Set.


This particular PLUM is a “THUNDERCLOUD” (Prunus Cerasifera) variation. It is NOT a domestic Plum Tree (Prunus Domestica).




THEN, as promised, I am RELEASING PHYRE DOJO’s ONLINE COURSE CONTENT: the HIDEN DENKI DENSHO, into the wild to roam free….

Here are Sections 001, the INTRO & DISCLAIMER, and Section 002, About the HDD.

Again, there are 46 Sections (currently) and I will be releasing these Sections every week until JULY 2022.

PLUM (Prunus Cerasifera) has an approximate JANKA HARDNESS of 1,550. This rating is (obviously) too hard/dense for a regular, standard (BD) Bow Drill, so the next (obvious) method is (ED) Egyptian Drill.

FOR COMPARISON: ( Atlantic White Cedar (Chamaecyparis Thoyoides) OR Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata) (i.e. “Your Cedar (BD) Bow Drill“) are ONLY Janka Hardness Rated: 350…)

There is a Universe of many other Methods (Basics) waiting for you to Discover and Explore…

   Still VERY busy trying to update my PhyreDojo site and fulfilling Orders while making these VLOGS and Balancing Life in general…
