Step 4: Add the Bail / Handle and Stand to the Cauldron
Photo 2: The stand is just a plastic flower pot that had the bottom cut off. A circle of plywood was cut to match the diameter of the flower pot and the sides were duct taped to it to give added strength. V-shaped openings were cut up the sides to allow 'fire light' from a red incandescent lamp that would be located inside the base to shine out onto the logs stacked around it. The stand is intended to carry the majority of the weight of the cauldron and liquid. But the bail also needs to be used to steady the cauldron as the liquid tray makes the cauldron top heavy.
