Welcom too DOW phillip dickinson, your last name is same as my late mothers name is /was.
Thank you all for the warm welcome ,I stumbled across this site while researching ideas on kilns( Ive been cooking in a mound in my yard!)and saw this young man with the distinguished mustache and when I heard that charcoal sound like Church bells ,I came a running!
Mr Phillip, glad that the content of this poor minded lunatics channel led you to this place Im sure you will enjoy the company. Wellcome!
Hi Phillip, welcome to DOW.
Thanks for the warm welcome,Im tryn to design a kiln to utilize some fire bricks I have on hand and sheet metal( I am a master carpenter,a plumber,an electrician,a gardener, amateur antenna designer,roofer,mechanic,etc,etc) yet cant decide on a design.Thinking about an updraft using metal to line an underground cube of 4 ×4×4 with brick and metal surrounding the charcoal wood above.Perhaps venting the [email protected] fire through the top ,so that it will catch fire and retort at the appropriate time.Or I may just copy the kiln that led me here.On another note I made soap last night and for my next venture Im considering the ballistics and trajectory needed to launch a 50 cal into high orbit assisted by a fusealog and then dropping and reentering the atmosphere at about 18000 mph to find it’s home in the back of Putins head.Ill be back with the results soon.
Well to round you out I suggest downloading, or buying a copy of this make-a-point movie:
“The Man Who Killed Hitler, and then the Bigfoot”.
Watch this. Then watch it again, and again, to learn to understand futility. Futility of the Big-Idea. Futility of the Grand-Gesture.
And maybe, just maybe . . . that personal touched, human love is the experience to strive for.
