wood prefurs to burn in a bed of ash, so will just keep chucking wood on top till it gets too deep and needs emptying , if it is difficult to clean will add an ash pan in the future

Very true but if you take the top layer from the ash bed then this is whats keeping your fire going. Also I find it easier to give it a good poke :) and take the burnt out ash from the base.

I am sure you know what your doing and will be interested to see the finished product.

Did you buy the hinges.

don,t know about the orange gas bottle,but i recognise the orange discovery in the back ground,how is your build progressing?

hello , plan was to strip the disco as soon as i got home and scrap the shell, but still havent got around to that yet , hope fully build over winter when the log burner heats up the shed (p.s Vosa where sat exatally where you said they would be on way home)

I think you should paint it that nice shade of orange with he green tinting in.

definately need an ash pan...

got some some nice stainless rod for making a grate. Not from work at all.....

also some (whatever size you require) galv sheet for the pan itself (could even provide stainless sheet up to 10mm.

spotted 3 fly-tipped gas bottles on my way to college the other day, was very tempted to pick them up. Only trouble is I dont have the means to make a log burner or the space to store it!

collect bottles any way ,

1) be doing the counrtry side a favour

2) saving your local council money

3) give you a very good reason to make a burner

4) cut tops off (safely) weigh them in lol
