upcycle

my names joe, a retired welder who has a small workshop in my garden !, i make all sorts of different things from scrap metals, i do make a lot of bbq,s, wood burners etc, and this is my latest wood/fuel burner { nowhere near finished yet} but it gives you some idea of what the end result will look like !, ok the cylinder is an old gas bottle of which i built the steam train frame around { after a lot of measuring} cutting, grinding, marking out etc,as i was building it i also made templates and jigs if i make any more, mostly plasma cut steel , cut by me, squared and tacked together as you see it now !, most of the hard work is done, just a few bits and bobs to do, then the funnel, and door, viewing area for the burner, also ive cut a small door in the cylinder in the cabin which i will attach a hinge to the door so when the burners lit it will mimmick the fire box with the fire glow when open, " hope you like it.
