    Bloody site easier than the one I did and probably way lighter.
    Made it from parts from an underground mine loader starting with the air tank (70ish litres) which came of a scrapped vehicle.
    Everything, latches, mesh, ducting, except the legs. This is the "light the fire and burn 30 years of paint off before painting" stage.
    Lucky I cant smell smoke anymore-apparently it stunk
    Actually this doesn't show the little section with the damper plate in the flue installed

    It was a bit of a head scratch how I did everything without ruining how it looked.
    Its actually upside down, the inspection port I left in the bottom to make it easier to get ash out and I put the flue where the drain bung used to be.
    The 3 under the door are more outlet sockets on the tank. Make it looks like I did it on purpose. Bit of steampunk going on.
    Cant for the life of me get any heat proof paint to stick for too long. Being outside obviously doesn't help.
    Only 2 sockets on the back I cut off and blended back in, you wouldn't know they were there. probably could've left them but they annoyed me.
    Only thing I found is that if the wood isn't dry as, it doesn't go so good. I suppose that's the same for most though although it had me wondering if the flue was bug enough.
    The wood I had in oz was called red wood. Burns awesome down to a superfine white ash. That certainly put the heat out.
    BUT if you have good wood and load it up it fair cranks the heat out.
    here is it as of about 5 minutes ago with the pushbike beside it for an indication of size. The top of the tank as it starts at the flue is about my belly button and I'm 5'10"

    have you tried old fashion stove black? @csmiffy?

    iv only ever used it on indoor fires but it seems more akin to shoe polish than paint

    @Bill999
    No I haven't actually and the only reason I didn't was a guy I knew built and indoor fire years ago and tried that but went to heat proof paint as it went better.
    Could be worth a crack though as the heat proof paint just doesn't last. tried a couple now.

    Dads bbq we built together 31 years ago.



    Can cook for 20 plus people on it and when finished a couple of guys with welding gloves on can lift the plate off then you can stack big lumps of firewood up in it like a brazier but bigger/better.

    I replaced the chimney a couple of years ago but otherwise its as built all those years ago with junk off the farm.

    Love it. What's the crank handle for? Controls air flow, or just for shits and giggles?

    Mainly just for looks but it is the place to grab it and move it around(swing it up and lock it in) while going and hot if needed for whatever reason.

    Air and wood goes in a large hole under the warming plate at the back.
