I've seen in several magazines where people have successfully fired a small home built wood fired kilns out of used old kilns. I have an old thin Skutt that no longer works that I thought I would insulate with 1" fiber on the inside and after a single fire, coat with ITC and see what happens. I figured a used large wood stove would suffice for a fire box. I'm just trying to decide if I should set the round kiln up as a down draft, cross draft or updraft kiln. (my neighbors are going to hate me!) The fire marshall lives next door and is encouraging me to give it a try. Anyone try this out yet?
