Boone kiln update

It's been awhile since I posted on Mark Murrey's kiln we are working on in Boone. It's been a slow process since we are building it through a Kiln Building class at ASU. Last semester we worked on it 1 day a week for 4 hours. It's almost done now. We only have the chimney, some more steel, bagwall, and door to go.


We are using 3 dampers for extra control of the temp and atmosphere. It also means they can be lower on the chimney and easier to reach.
Mark sent me a link to this amazing video. All you kiln builders out there should appreciate this guy's skill.
