    I will start off by saying I used materials I had on hand or that I picked up for free. The total cost for materials I didn't have on hand or picked up for free was $43.

    Brick (on hand)
    Heat treated pallets (free)
    20mm ammo can (on hand)
    Staimless fireplace lining (free)
    Screws (on hand)

    I purchased 3 bags of concrete, 3 bags of mortar, a trowel, 2 six inch stove pipe fittings, and a six inch cast iron damper.

    After taking apart the pallets and removing all the nails I ran all of the planks through a thickness planer to clean them up and get a uniform thickness of 1/2 inch.

    Looks nice and seems to work well! I will assume all ammo was removed from said can😜

    Ha ha. Yes ammo can empty. I also had to remove the rubber seal. I burned a hot fire a couple of times to burn off the paint inside.
