......Normally it's 10, 12, 18 hour days with sleep between- nobody on an overnight shift. That promotes domestic tranquility, as there are no hippies going in the house in the middle of the night. Just let it cool a little, and pick it up the next day- there's no rush. With my kiln, the longer slow days up front distribute ash up top and in the back better than just firing flat
.....For most of the firing- my Bourry Box style firebox will eat anything- logs 10" around, big slabs with giant knots-18" wide and 8" thick- not a problem! I can load the firebox, go in the house and feed/take the dogs out or grab dinner and leave it for 15 minutes at a stretch.
Super cool that you dont have to be awake for x amount of days.
How big of drop in temp during off time? Saw video of kiln very cool. Via u tube.
Is there any noticeable difference in firing with breaks vs continuous.
I like the bourry box concept!!!!
Any pics or design drawings of kiln ?
Looks like most of your kiln is soft brick?
I was just given some hard brick and soft brick , burner parts to build a small kiln, I have an idea of what.i want... But always looking for ideas/inspiration
Adam can't wait to see you wood fired pieces!
