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?
