Double, Down Draft Oil Barrel Kiln

05 September 2013 - 06:18 PM

I am in the process of building a down draft barrel kiln similar to the one in the alternative kilns and firing Technique books by James Watkins and Paul Wandless.  I was thinking about trying to use two barrels with a shared chimney so that I could do two firings at once without the expense of having a second chimney.  I planned to use a t shaped pipe to join the two barrels with a central chimney.  Has anyone ever tried this?  I'm wondering if there would be enough airflow using one chimney to support the two barrels.  Any ideas?
