Hello to my new family of crazies !! LOL
With only 10 posts, this is my first ever thread. Can we say rookie ?
I'm not a welder but have access to equipment ( I sooooo want to learn thanks to the many great works I've seen so far).
That being said I like to build with wood.
Here is my idea and love to hear from ya'll:
I took the wood stove out of my ice hut and got a barrel. I have 7" elbows and pipe from the hut, but the hidden flue is 6", so I'm thinking of raising the barrel and using 6" pipe from the woodstove to the barrel.
The chimney would be on the same side (use my 7" and I'm thinking reverse flow).
The black pipe holding the barrel is doing just that.
- I'd like to build a wood base with fireboard as floor (big enough to support wood stove and barrel),
- Build a support (posts and saddle) to hold the barrel where the black pipe is.
- Put wheels so it become a mobile unit
I used the spread sheet for calculations and with the size of wood stove, barrel, pipes I have - it'll work. I just have to work on inside plate to make it a reverse (should it be?) and of course make grill for cooking.
I know I'll have to wash inside, give it a burn etc but I'd like to get some design ideas. I figure I need to spend about $50 for wood then move on to welding and final fabrication.
Thanks in advance
