I’m in the process of setting up a blog to document the contruction of a furnace, based on information gathered from various other sources with my own twists for new features or what seems like a better way to do things.
This isn’t the simplest way to build one, but should be quite nice if it all pans out the way that it should. The design is intended to be able to put out enough heat, and contain it, to be able to melt iron and glass. A recent change to the plans adds a forge window in case I want to tinker with forging. I think it may also be good for melting small amounts of precious metals in a “tray” crucible.
I take no responcibility for anyone that may try to duplicate my work themselves. Be careful!
