Heating oil tank vertical build

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone and welcome to my vertical heating oil tank build. I originally purchased the tank to build a smoker for a friend but then they decided they didn't want it. So now I'm building it for someone else.

 

I got a pretty good start on it today so I will let the pics do the talking. This was my first tank I've cut and just as I predicted the panel was under a decent amount of tension. I'll be adding some bracing so that i can keep everything square.

So it's kinda cold so I didnt take a lot of time for pics while I was building but this is where I am so far. And the crooked braces in the door are just temporary because I was struggling with the tension on the panel.

It needs a paint job but its finished. I'm not sure how its going to flow with the short stack but that was not my call. It does look pretty cool though.  let me know what you think
