  • Pot belly fire

    With winter approaching I spent yesterday finishing off a bit of a fire place for the back yard


    Made from 2 truck brake drums held together with a steel band

    the smoke stack is a old bit of 4inch bore casing
    The lid is a bit of 2.5mm plate
    the adaptor from the brake drum to the stack is a fitting that is or was commercially available for fitting to a 44gallon drum

    A few braces to support the smoke stack and a stand to lift it up off the ground and the job was completed

    The bottom of the brake drums are open to allow air flow

    All in all a quick and easy build

    Warning bloody heavy when finished make sure you eat your wheatbix before moving

    You know that moment when the steak is on the grill and your mouth waters in anticipation? Vegans feel the same after mowing the lawn.

      Bloody Gladys is trying to do away with these sort of things... Someone should remind her they work better than a paper shredder.

        Nothing lights a fire better than shredded paper and petrol

              Gotta go find mine out in the back yard and put a pic up, slight variation on your Fish.
              The TRUTH is out there,
              the Aliens think its a great joke on us.
              We still believe in Santa, but eat the Easter Bunny

              And the Easter Bunny tastes SO GOOD !!
              That's why he is made of Chocolate.
