Miter saw dust
that look like a useful pile of biomass?

Mark pointed out to me
last week that our miter saw channels the sawdust
(mostly) through a little tube in the back of the saw.
Presumably, the purpose is to enable you to hook the saw up to a bag or
vaccuum system to keep your house from turning into a mess when using
the miter saw indoors, but Mark has a plan to add a hose to the opening
and channel that sawdust into a five gallon bucket. Meanwhile,
I've just been scooping it up and adding it to various mulch piles.
Mark dreams of providing
so much biomass that I get sick and tired of it, a bit like parents who
make their kids smoke a whole pack of cigarettes if they catch them
easing into the bad habit at a young age. I'm afraid I'm already
too addicted, though, for his strategy to work.
