I will be turning an old gas bottle into a log burner/patio heater. My trade is in the welding and fabrication industry therefore i am lucky to have the tools to hand. But to be honest the main tool for this job was a grinder .each step I will inform you of the hours I have spent up to this point. I must add that Im rather fussy and a perfectionist and the hours might give it away :) .
I am no log burner expert but have put many hours of research into this project
Hope you enjoy my project .
Step 1: Cutting the Bottle
Spend plenty of time designing your project. Have a look at the materials you have and then mark the bottle .big health and safety risk here , so take the brass valve off and fill with water to disperse the remaining gas. I personally stuck a wooden peg into the hole to stop the water from escaping when butting the bottle on its side .
Here you can see I have welded 12mm square bar so the wood can sit on it allowing air to aid the lighting of the fire from the bottom
