This Part 21 of a series of a fair few posts, Part 1 (link here) gives an overview and the philosophy applied to the series – cheap, simple and fun.
Today my favourite so far the Charcoal Burner, a very common feature up to the second part of the 20th century, it is used to produce charcoal. In Sweden as in many countries charcoal was important during the war years due to fuel rationing and the of coal to produce wood gas to use for vehicle fuel.
A Charcoal burner is basically a packed pile of wood covered and being burnt to produce charcoal, here is a video (in Swedish, showing an overview, if you are interested).
Anyway this is how I made one (note my support arrangements have been simplifed)
Really happy with that, I will do a Charcoal Burners hut later as part of this project and some more piles of earth to put around the burner. Spend is still £24.42 in total as we just used coffee stirrers and some junk.
Tomorrow, we will do something else…
