Don't use cement! The moisture in it could cause it to explode. Use plaster instead.

Thank you for sharing your design idea. Metal casting is next on my project list, I like the fact you use wood as a fuel instead of charcoal or propane as many others do, this makes it the least expensive way to enjoy the hobby.

Merci de partager votre idée de conception. Coulée de métal est le prochain sur ma liste de projet, je l'aime le fait que vous utilisez du bois comme combustible à la place du charbon de bois ou le propane comme beaucoup d'autres, ce qui rend le moyen le moins cher pour profiter de la passe.

Interesting design. Have you created any molds in it or shapes?

Would be nice to see a product! Thanks.
